"Healthy Lifestyles"

On February 24 to 26, 2009 I did a mural with the students of Sherbrooke Elementary School, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada on the theme of Healthy Lifestyles. The mural was located on a staircase connecting the gym to the cafeteria, thus it offered the reason to explore ideas that would relate to both. On the first day in class we did a series of exercises on paper. Many of the drawings made by the students reflected the importance of eating well to stay healthy as well as exercising.

It's the first mural I've worked on that emphasizes both these concerns which I think are extremely important to all of us.
