Project Description

The little mural of the school Àngel Ruiz i Pablo

MENORCA – SPAIN

This mural was made during a painting workshop with the children of the primary school Angel Ruiz i Pablo. The chose theme was around the sentence “We play” around which several characters and landscapes were created to decorate the walls of the school playground. This theme was chosen by the school’s teachers. The wall that was to be painted was located next to a sports track that also served as a recreation area for the children. The kids were asked to draw their ideas around the chosen theme.

With these drawings, a sketch was made that included all the drawings while respecting the children’s vision. Once the sketch was made, a date was chosen to set up the final activity of the workshop. During the chosen days, the children took turns in groups so that each group could complete part of the painting, day by day. As planned, the painting began to be painted and the other groups who were not painting came to visit to see how the work was progressing.

Each group was able to participate in the realization of a part of the painting assigned to them. Once each group had participated, after some retouching by the organizer, the painting was finished!
The final product is the result of work that required the imagination and dexterity of the children under the supervision of an organizer of the workshop. It was a pleasure to participate in this decoration project. The school is located in the city of Mao, in the east of the island of Menorca in the Balearic Islands. This workshop was held in an exceptional environment and the welcome received was equal to the beauty of the place.

Once again, thank you very much to the teachers and children of the school.We hope you will be able to enjoy your painting for many years to come!
