Artist por­trays daily ac­tiv­ity in school grounds

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Artist Anne de Silva has cre­ated a one-of-akind art­work for Hin­uera Pri­mary School. The paint­ing gives a birds-eye view of the school and is full of tiny de­tails that show what Hin­uera Pri­mary is all about. Prin­ci­pal Dean McDon­nell said it was a bit like Where’s Wally – if you look closely you can see chil­dren help­ing each other, re­cy­cling or play­ing sport. De Silva said it had been tricky try­ing to fig­ure out how the school would look from the sky. Co­in­ci­den­tally, a pi­lot vis­ited the school with an ae­rial shot he had taken of the area as de Silva was work­ing on the project. The paint­ing was un­veiled at a spe­cial as­sem­bly last Tues­day.
