Mural with school children in an underpass

19/07/2014 22:42

I have had the privilege of working with 110 children to paint a mural in a dingy underpass prone to graffiti. It has been an exhausting and very satisfying experience.

The pupils from Cedewain school designed and painted the background and pupils from Maesyrhandir primary school drew people and animals and then came to paint them onto the walls. They did a fantastic job. My role was to organise and cost the work, co-ordinate the designing and painting and to bring a unity to the final picture.

The mural was funded by Welsh Government and the bid was put together and administered by Powys County Council. PCC staff also did the preparatory work on the wall and put on an anti graffiti coating on completion.

The huge number of positive comments from local people has been very encouraging.
