"Mountainview Cares"

On May 4, 5 and 6 I worked on a Mural at Mountainview Elementary School in Deux-Montagnes, Quebec.

The theme for this mural, “Mountainview Cares”, reflects the students concern for the environment. This is a very current topic for a mural and what I like about it is the possibility to portray nature and it’s richness. Images of trees, animals, flowers and planets are very present in children’s art and this is the time to show it.

The result is a very fluid group of drawings floating on the white space of the wall. The students worked by themselves or in groups of two creating a work of art to remind us of the beauty of our planet and the importance of caring for its well being.

The song “It’s a Beautiful Day” is very reassuring of our efforts to protect it.

I’m proud of the students who worked on this wonderful project!!
