We have recently finished Ashmole Primary School mural, the Project was called mini beasts focusing on insects and creatures that live amongst the plants and flowers of their school gardens.
The mural was created by the whole school years 1-6 each class had a chosen mini beast which they drew and talked about.
The project has been great success transforming a blank empty space into an inviting entrance to the school grounds.
The project was funded by Ashmole Primary School PTA
The team have just completed 3 large works of art at St Matthew’s Primary School, transforming the schools entrance.
on our arrival we spent the day talking to the pupils about our murals and how they are created, we visited the walls to be painted and discussed how we can make them more inviting and exciting..
we spoke about the schools class names and how they are all named after animals and plants from around the united kingdom, it was also mentioned that the schools 5 values where to be represented within the designs (support, positive relationships, achievement and success, coping skills and confidence) also the schools motto “we are a Happy Centred School”
other considerations where the schools owl logo along with the uniform colours and the schools sports.
from this we designed 3 murals
1. landscape/wildlife mural incorporating as many of the animals and plants of the class names
with the school motto very large and centred.
2. sports wall / cricket, dodge ball, football, netball.
3. owl wall / based on the school logo with a wise owl in there nest with 3 young owls in school jumpers representing the pupils being taught and cared for.
throughout the different stages the pupils came out and watched the murals take shape and asked us many questions about what we where doing and how parts of the mural where created.
overall the project has inspired and brightened a space for all to enjoy.
here are photos of the murals:

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.
