MURALS

Paul's murals are inspired by Aboriginal rock art culture and teachings under the mentorship
of Yidumduma Bill Harney. They are co-designed and painted by art teachers, students and
participants, using local motifs, often school totems or emblems. They are designed so an
entire class or all the participants if possible, can be painting at the same time, aiming
to create community through the art process.

Mostly painted on 18x5 foot sign cloth, the mural is often used as the theatrical backdrop
for the final performance. They become a permanent reminder of the Aussie Residency, it's
fun, learning, and a signature mark left behind by former students.

The mural workshop supports achievement standards in Visual Arts, Theatre, Social Studies,
Science and Geography.
