The Priory School, Christchurch. Canteen Mural 2019

I visited this school as an artist in education with Wave Arts July 2019. They needed a mural in their refectory and I was asked to help them create one during their summer art week.
I had the basic idea for the mural and asked the teachers to get the children to make drawings and come up with ideas on the theme during the early part of the week, which I then worked with to make the mural design, which was mostly painted by the school children themselves, with my overseeing and coordination during the time I spent there. As usual the children just ran with it and made it really excellent. The input I had in painting was of any area that was above up stretched hand height on the ladder, the rest was them!
We used a combination of painting and printmaking techniques.
