‘Sauce’ lends extra to project
SNAKES and ladders is the new hit game at Coalstoun Lakes School following a visit from artist Christian “Sauce” Griffiths.
The Murwillumbah mural artist used aerosols to create four murals and the snakes and ladders concrete floor game at the school this month.
School principal Benjamin Reed said Sauce was just the contemporary artist needed to bring a fresh perspective to the school grounds, after the school had revised its mission.
“We’ve developed our new four-year plan, refined and updated our vision, purpose and values,” Mr Reed said.
“The welcome mural shows our vision, motto and positive behaviour message: effective learners are safe, respectful and responsible.”
After Sauce delivered a stencilling workshop, a collaborative mural was created on the side of an amenities block.
Named the “another brick in the wall project”, the children wrote their names on a brick and Sauce contributed cartoon characters.
“Kids could watch or participate in the painting, and there were structured observation exercises too,” Mr Reed said.
Additional works included a mural featuring the school’s 10 values, “a fantastic bonus 3D mural” and a painted version of the school logo on its assembly and performance stage.
