Project Description

Together with artist James Micallef Grimaud, and Għarghur Primary school art teacher, the Year 5 Students (Scholastic Year 2013/2014) worked on a mural related project funded through the Kreattiv Funds. The project was divided in different stages. The first stage included an introduction on the locality of Għargħur and a sketching process through fieldwork in the surrounding locality. This was followed by workshops on composition, perspective and other artistic skills which helped the students to bring their knowledge on the Għargħur area together into a well composed mural. The mural was constructed in a layered manner. Each layer was painted on a separate piece of wood, cut out and placed at an equal distance from each other. When seen from a certain distance it will create one whole mural. The twelve Year 5 students were divided into four groups of three students each. Each group tackled a different part of the layered mural which came together as one on completion.
