Sherbrooke Elementary School 2011

On April 27, 28 and 29 I was in Sherbrooke, Quebec working on a mural project at Sherbrooke Elementary School.

We had a group of 20 students and seven pieces of plywood to paint. The theme of the mural was “Beautiful Things in Life”.

Each piece of plywood had to be divided in three parts in order to accommodate three students. I decided to draw two vases with flowers on each, creating this division and honouring at the same time, flowers, butterflies and birds as great examples of such things.

At the end of the project I asked the students to dance for the video. They came up with these very energetic moves which led to the song “Let’s go Crazy” from Prince.

The result is really a lot of fun - an ultimate mixture of Joy and Beauty.

Bravo to all the wonderful artists / dancers from Sherbrooke Elementary School that I had the chance to work with.
