Back to school mural painting

A mural is an artistic way of spreading a feeling of positivity.

With today’s Covid-19 Protocols influencing school routine, where students cannot move around freely between classes we chose and area where all students pass on a daily basis to welcome them back to school. We wanted to use natural forms and calming colours to create a feeling joyfulness and positivity about being back at school.

The artist we used for inspiration was Ashley Mary, an American artist who creates murals in public places. The students particularly liked her work.

Students needed to re-establish their confidence when working with practical materials.What is more, developing a good atmosphere in the group as sharing and talking about their artwork is a big part of the IGCSE Art subject.

It’s hard for students to understand how Art is marked and graded so by using the process in a project that was less individual they could better understand how to use them in their own work. Working as a group, following teacher guidance, students worked through the creative process and  the assessment objectives by which their IGCSE is evaluated.

They studied the artist’s work and selected the shapes, colours and compositions from her work that would fit best with our school. They also looked at natural forms and shapes found around our school that we could include.

We wanted a rainbow as it is a symbol that has been used a lot during the pandemic, also the crescent sun on the Sunland logo and shapes of leaves that we see around our school. The wall is near the swimming pool so we wanted to include elements of water such as a fish which is also a creature associated with calm.

Y11 students painted it in a one day workshop. In pairs they made a design on a small piece of paper. Later they joined with another pair and combined their designs to work as a group of 4. Then they divided the wall area between two groups of 4 to make large sketches on the surface to plan out our area.

The result is extremely beautiful. Great job guys!
