Re-Designing Schools

BY THANDO NGOPE, GRADE 9

During the holiday program we got an opportunity to work with Claire and Sergio from the One Love Studio. They showed us the murals they have done in South Africa, which was so inspiring.

We chose a wall at our school at Silikamva High, then we were given references to look at and choose to use in our planned artwork. On the first day we drew and took photos of the walls around our school. On the second day One Love taught us about enlarging our art for the wall, which we then painted with beautiful and bright colours. Painting with the One Love Studio was a great experience and I would like to thank Lalela for giving us the amazing opportunity to re-design our school.
