The PARKLET is a joyous addition to the Crookwell streetscape adding colour and a comfy place to sit. It is adored with paintings by students at Crookwell Primary School.
The kids created the paintings with Sally O’Neill at a workshop inspired by Sally’s mural ‘What a Cowtastrophe!’ around the corner. Sally worked with 51 students in a series of workshops to create two mini murals on boards that were when used to cover the sides of the parklets.
First we worked with the youngest students to create a bright, geometric abstract background before the primary students painted portraits of various farm animals. The products are truly delightful! There are so many young talented artists in Crookwell 🥰
This workshop was so very special as it was the first I had ever delivered to students as an artist outside of my job at the Gallery😱🎉😍! It was also the first time I had worked face to face with students at a school since COVID lockdown!
Thanks to the school for having me along and to Southern Tablelands Arts and Upper Lachlan Shire Council for making it all happen 🌟🌟🌟
