Mersey Primary Mural:  Artist Derek Howlett worked with one class to come up with a design for this playground mural. He worked with all the children in the school in rotation to paint the design- allocating different sections to different age groups- for example the world and people were by year 5 and 6 and key stage one children did the insects. We felt it was important to incorporate the different stages in artistic development in the design and celebrate it. The artist worked on the high up parts on his own- due to health and safety considerations and he also did the tidy up of the painting and undercoated and varnished the mural without children present due to fumes from the specialist substances used.
