Last month I engaged with another Graduate Diploma student and graphic designer, Robyn Rochat, to design and paint a mural at Morley Primary School. As part of our Dip-Ed at Edith Cowan University, we were required to take part in an Artist in Residency program, through which Robyn facilitated workshops with the Pre-Primary classes to produce a series of artworks that captured self portraits, flowers and animals. I was then able to incorporate these designs into an artwork that celebrates the sense of ‘self’ and ‘wonder’. Oh to be a child again!
Measuring approximately 4.2m by 2.2m, the mural took 4days to paint and will tie in nicely with the new upgrades to the playground equipment scheduled for early next year. A huge thank you to the teaching and admin staff at Morley Primary School and to school Principal, Yvonne Arnott. I thoroughly enjoyed working on this project, I felt like I re-lived my Pre-primary days all over again. Looking forward to future collaborations in the new year.
