Mount Claremont Primary School - Community Art Mural





Happy Walls

In 2006 a number of families and teachers from  Mount Claremont Primary School came together to transform the walls of the pre-primary classroom to spread happiness. During a drawing workshop the children, aged four and five, eagerly  produced beautiful line drawings of Australian wildlife which I then incorporated into a mural design to enlarge and wrap around the whole building. Parents, teachers and children all worked together to apply the first coats of white paint. The project took about five months to complete and the walls continue to bring smiles to the many passers-by on the busy Montgomery Avenue in Perth, Australia.
