Carlyle Elementary School

Town of Mount Royal, Québec

On April 18, 19, and 20, 2012 I worked on a mural project at Carlyle Elementary School. The mural was placed right at the entrance of the school in a space composed by three walls. The School wanted to highlight some of its ideals and therefore you’ll see some of them written on top of the doors. We discussed in class the importance of striving to be knowledgeable, open–minded, balanced, caring and reflective. The drawings made by the children reflect on these concerns. I chose the song “How Beautiful a Being Could Be” by Brazilian singer/composer Caetano Veloso. It’s meant to be a compliment to all the beautiful participants of this project and their enthusiasm to learn and do their best in School and in Life. Bravo!! Marcio Melo
