Client: Safety Bay Senior High
When: June 2018 and March 2019
Brief: Safety Bay Senior High School asked Fieldey to facilitate two student assisted murals across two years to help beautify the school and engage the students. The first mural in 2018, was created to coincide with the school’s 40th Anniversary and the second painted in 2019, was designed to promote ‘The Arts’.
Outcome: Two large walls were picked for the murals and Fieldey worked with art teacher Tracey Sharpe, and two groups of selected year 8 to 10 students. The project started with an initial concept brainstorming workshop, where Fieldey worked with the students to come up with ideas for the mural concept. Utilising those ideas, Fieldey created a professional concept which was approved by the school.
A second skills building workshop followed on, and Fieldey taught the students painting techniques to build their skills and confidence before a final full-day painting session where students painted the wall.
Fieldey and Tracey finished the murals to a professional standard the day after.
