Artist in Residence Karrinyup Primary School 2012

This project involved the whole school community. It required the painting of large murals covering exterior school walls. The brief for the upper school was Australian flora and fauna whilst the brief for the lower school included wildflowers, butterflies, insects and bugs. The lower school was facilitated by Mrs. Sharon O’Rourke and I facilitated the middle and upper school.

Each class was allocated a theme and every student in the school completed a drawing. Drawings were collected, selected, put into compositions and drawn onto the walls. All students in the school then had the opportunity to paint their designated murals. The outcome has been very well received and it has created a lot of interest in the school quadrangle with students, parents and the wider community.
