Hwa Chong International School Mural Project
Over a stretch of 8 weeks, SCYA was engaged by Hwa Chong International School to paint a mural on three classroom walls in their campus. The secondary one students were taught how to plan a mural as well as techniques that are used during the painting. The students were split into their classes Balance, Caring, and Knowledge. The murals are painted with reference to these names.
Artists Jacquelyn Soo, Gerald Tay, and Dominic Tong were put in-charge of the classes and conducted their lessons in and outside of the classrooms. Students were introduced to different brushes, paint mixing as well as blending during the course of 8 weeks.
The students enjoyed the chance to experience the painting of a mural as it was their first time painting for many of them! A great teaching and learning experience for everyone!
