MILES FRANKLIN PRESCHOOL

This project was my first community project I facilitated. It involved 4-5 year old students and parent volunteers. I took children's images and collated them into a cohesive design based around a garden scene. I then mosaiced them and parent volunteers and a staff member assisted in the installation. The mural is located in the grounds of the Miles Franklin Preschool, Canberra ACT Australia.
