Burwood East Primary School
When Principal Darren McDonald, from Burwood East Primary School in Melbourne, contacted the Street Art Studios team, the school was going through some building upgrade works. They were interested in changing the look and feel of the school, but mostly wanted to revamp a couple of tired, old demountable buildings.
The decision was to create artworks inspired by each building’s specific subject – Science and Performing Arts. The students’ own drawings of what these subjects mean to them were to be incorporated, so it meant that the artwork remained as much their creation as it was Sheeps’, the artist.
Within a two week period we were able to transform the tired looking demountable buildings into vibrant and inviting classrooms, certain to inspire the students within.
“Very impressive work, Sheeps. The students are going to be gobsmacked! Thank you again for visiting our school and for making these 2 buildings stand out. It will help to keep the pupils interested in these 2 subjects. I am also very impressed that you were able to incorporate their designs into your artwork”. Darren McDonald
