On April 3, 4 and 5, 2012, I worked on a mural project at Shawinigan High School with the collaboration of art teacher Winnie Lilley. The mural was executed on a yellow staircase and the theme ranged from images evoking sports activities to the Arts.
Talking over the phone with Winnie, we discussed the possibility of creating a background that would evoke some of the elements of the local environment such as rivers and rocks.
I drew a series of waves on the wall connecting the spaces in which the students placed their drawings.
They all worked very hard on their personal images and the result is excellent
I chose the song the Waters of March, a major classic of the Brazilian Bossa Nova repertoire for the obvious reference to water and rivers.
Bravo to all the participants for the great work they did! Enjoy it!
