The primary school Lanaspa-Giralt Sabadell contacted us to organize a workshop with the school’s kids to decorate one of their walls behind the basketball fields.
The school chose the theme of friendship and camaraderie. Thus, the children were asked to make drawings based on what this theme represented to them. Once these drawings were collected by us, we had to select those whose elements, ideas, concepts or even composition would be part of the final result. Once this step was completed, we stylized the drawings in order to define a homogeneous aesthetic line for the entire painting. Finally, with all these stylized elements, we created the final composition of the painting that would put in space and interaction the different chosen elements. In order to complete the implementation process, there were still some adjustments to be made to fulfil the teacher’s wish. Once this step was completed, the final draft was ready.
Once the date was found to complete this activity, we distributed the children in small groups. Each group was assigned a part of the mural to be painted and the children followed the instructions we gave them. One group after another, the kids took turns in order to contribute to the realization of the mural. After some final retouching by the workshop organizer, the final painting was finished, as can be seen on the images shown here.
In these images, you can see how the appearance of the playground changed after completing this workshop. The playground appears livelier with the new mural. Thank you very much for your collaboration and we hope you will be able to enjoy your painting for many years to come!
