Personal Feedback:
I enjoy working with Artworks For Milwaukee. I feel they are preparing me to be the best employee that I can be. I have never painted a mural before and thought it would be more challenging than it actually is. One thing that is more difficult than I expected is taking criticism. But I understand the importance of being a team player.

Feedback From The Lead Artist `Ammar Nsoroma:
The project is going great so far. We are past the minor obstacles  like coming up with ideas to sketch  and we are progressing steadily now. We are working on painting in the images and the mural is coming together although is still in the "underwear stages." The team members are growing in their understanding of mural work and it is good to see.
