These murals were created for the Centenary of Whickham Front Street School in 2009. The project involved a lot of research into local history and history in general, to pick out images that would be eye catching and memorable. The final compositions were greatly aided by the use of an equally historical overhead projector, which proves invaluable for assembling large imagery. I spent 2 weeks with the pupils who thoroughly enjoyed painting on such epic scales.
