Painting the Mural – The Conclusion

|Painting the Mural – The Conclusion

Last Sunday the students returned to the school for the fourth and final phase of the mural painting. It was time to finish the colourful freeze and add the finishing touches to the main part of the mural – some clouds, butterflies, mountains and hand-prints to add extra colour.

A grey wall was transformed into a bright and cheerful mosaic of colour. The students did a great job and both them and the children at the school had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures of the results.
