Art students beautify our walls

clip_image002During May, a group of twenty Grade 10 art students from King David High School in Victory Park came to the Sheikha Al Jalila House for the WSPCCA to paint murals on our walls and bring some colour to our world.

Judy Shear, art teacher of the KDVP Campus, said: “Madeleine Hicklin – fund-raiser for the WSPCCA –
approached us to once again get involved with the charity, this time to paint murals on the outside wall of the property and two walls of the house. We jumped at the chance as it would offer our students a wonderful opportunity of giving something back to the community – particularly to those less privileged than themselves – and offer us invaluable experience in mural painting.

Thanks must go to the students for their wonderful work and to House of Paint, Fourways for part sponsoring the paint.
