At Clairvaux Catholic Primary School in Geelong, the entrance to the school has a series of wooden posts which have been given a magical makeover.
According to my friend who teaches there, this was organised by the art teacher. It is such a simple gesture which makes the entrance attractive and welcoming. It is also maintainable! When the posts start looking a bit bedraggled, simply repaint them. Another project for another class and more design ideas to dream about!
I feel that David McKee the author of Elmer the Patchwork Elephant would approve of this artwork too 🙂
