Kid’s Mural for Morley Primary School

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.

School Holiday Art Workshops

Over the April School hols we had a super fun time at Neil Street Art Studio painting all sorts of colourful, wild and crazy things like pineapples, tropical birds, river rocks, enchanted rainbow clouds and more. Drawing inspiration from the Art movements, Expressionism, Pop Art, Impressionism and my own tips and tricks as a practicing artist, the Kids painted a step by step project in each Workshop, also learning essential painting skills such as Brush types, colour mixing, tones and shades, contrasting colours, self reflection and much more.

60 Kids, 4 days of Fun and 8 Workshops for 2 different ages groups. That’s a lot of maths!

Cant wait for the next School Holidays to do it all over again with all new projects. Coming soon to www.linzicarter.com, an online Booking facility for Neil Street Art Studio, but until then, head to http://linzicarter.com/workshops/upcoming/ for all the upcoming Workshop info.

Happy Painting from Neil Street Art Studio and Linzi Carter Art.
