I am a big fan of the Art created by children around the age of 8 or 9 years old. They are at an age where their drawings are expressive and they have enough skill to realise their ideas without worrying too much about how realistic their drawings are. The kids in each Grade 3 class at Caulfield South Primary School chose a theme and their work was big, bold and original. I created a composition and drafted up their designs on a couple of portables, the entire mural is about 18 metres long. The kids painted the whole thing themselves with incredible enthusiasm. It looks really bright and joyful as you walk past the school, brightens up the playground and gives students ownership of their environment.
