Jules Verne Elementary School

Laval, Québec

"Imagination and Discovery"

On April 29, 30 and May 1st I worked on a mural at Jules Verne Elementary School in Laval Quebec. Learning that the school was named after the man who wrote “Around the World In 80 Days” immediately made me want to explore images that would evoke exotic places in the world of imagination. It’s a wonderful thing to work on a mural where the students have total freedom to express their creativity. The main question in this project was the most basic and fundamental one, “What do you like to draw?”

The result is an interesting interaction of spaces where drawings are placed inside shapes of castles and animals creating an opportunity to explore further possibilities - a true invitation to a journey of unexpected discoveries!!

Enjoy it!!
