"Painting for the Arts"

On May 13,14 and 15 I worked on a mural project in Pointe-Claire, Quebec at Lindsay Place High School.

The project was organized with the participation of the art teacher Rima Moushaghayan who had the students prepare drawings in advance to be placed on the mural. This simple task often gives very good results considering that the students will approach the idea of drawing on the wall with more confidence.

The location of the mural, whose theme was “Painting for the Arts”, was very strategic in the sense that it is located at the steps leading to the auditorium. The auditorium is the place were art and music related activities take place. In fact, all through the time we were painting we could hear very interesting renditions of classical music.

The students were very quiet and worked very well as you can see in the video.

“Mr. Tambourine Man” done by Bob Sinclar, chosen for the video, couldn’t be more appropriate. Enjoy it!!!
