Downlands Collaborative Painting

Downlands Collaborative Painting

In my other life I’m the marketing manager at a wonderful high school here in Toowoomba, Downlands College.

A Missionaries of the Sacred Heart College, we are regularly offered retreat days, and just before Easter all staff (teachers, admin, cleaning, cooking, grounds and maintenance… everyone!) participated in a ‘mind, spirit, body’ themed day. I was asked to run a collaborative painting workshop throughout the day, so I was in my happy place.

I ran it in three sessions and each group grew in numbers as people saw what was happening and wanted to be a part of it.

And look what we ended up with! This is a special mural canvas with eyelets in the corners, so will be hung in the staff dining room for everyone to enjoy.

If you would like to engage me for a collaborative group painting project, either on one large canvas or multiple canvases pushed together and painted as one, feel free to email and I’ll see what I can do!
With results like this, and the longevity of the project, it’s a great thing for morale!
