We have just finished a huge mural on the side of the the St Mungo’s Trust building which faces into the Palace Road Nature Garden in Streatham Hill. The wall depicts the seven continents of the world as stain glass windows to reflect the multicultural community. It was a great inter-generational project working with 3 to 70 year old’s from the local area. The mural has mad a huge difference to the enjoyment and profile of the lovely nature garden. It was funded by Lambeth Council and supported and organised by the friends group, headed by Gerry Mc Ateer.
For the opening local celebrity Levi Roots came down and unveiled the windows one by one. It was a great day and celebration of a wonderful project.

Wow we have just recovered from an amazing weekend in Brixton for Urban Art 2104. For the second year running Positive Arts organised the ever popular Street Art area on Josephine Avenue. For 2 days we got the best UK graffiti/street artists to paint masterpieces on our walls and train, which then went on display in Brixton Square for a week after the event. Artists this year included guests Gent48, Astek, Odissey, Vibes, Lovepusher, Crymein, Deps, Ink Fetish, Pref, BRK, and Revs alongside the Positive Arts team Mr Cenz, Aero, Solo One and Pure One. Below are some great photos from the weekend, some of them courtesy of Monoprix!
We have just finished an amazing transformation of a dull looking mobile classroom at Surrey Street Primary School in Luton. We worked with the year 6 class to create a mural based on underwater and mythological creatures. Everyone was so pleased with the end result. Here are some kind words from the class teacher:
“I just wanted to send a quick email to say how impressed I am with the art work James, Mark and the children have produced. James and Mark have a great way of working with the children and have never grown impatient with their many questions. They made the children feel valued and encouraged them to take ownership of the artwork.
The artwork is outstanding and already staff and parents have commented on it’s quality.
I hope that we can work together soon and will keep pushing Positive Arts’ name for any future projects.”
Gregory Iszchak, Year 6 Teacher
We were invited down to the lovely Wellington College to run a workshop at the Sunday Times- Festival of Education by the Diana Award. We had a great day helping to creat
some amazing artwork for the y/p passing through.
We have just been up to Liverpool to do a really successful one day workshop with the Year 6 kids from Waterloo Primary School. We created some great boards for display based on their new school code of conduct.
