Canterbury Primary School Prep Aged Workshops and Mural
When the art department from Victoria-based Canterbury Primary School contacted Sheeps from Street Art Studios, they were looking to update some of their school murals, and wanting to begin street art workshops for students from Prep and Grades one to three. Though the school was unsure whether they could be run safely for younger students, Sheeps was able to take the knowledge he has gained over the past five years of mural installation and workshop facilitation and put together a feasible and affordable plan to help this school and its students rejuvenate the school’s dated artwork, involving students in a fun, creative, and educational experience.
With a quick introduction to the students, teaching staff and faculty, Sheeps set about taking the Students drawings they presented to him, and to create a quick design that was an embodiment of all the best ideas from their imaginations. He then showed and explained Spray paint and the proper and safe ways to use the Low Odour, Low VOC, water based Spray Paints which were developed and sized for use by children.
With their smocks, wide smiles and eagerness to paint, the kids all took their turns to add colour to the sandpit mural and created one of the funnest and age appropriate murals to date. The kids were thrilled when they had the opportunity to show off their handiwork to their parents, as were their parents at seeing what their children could accomplish when showed the correct way to enjoy spray paint in a safe, controlled environment.
If your School could do with an update, or would like to provide your school with some fantastic artwork that the kids can have ownership and pride in producing, then get in touch with the Street Art Studios team
