Month theme : " Graffiti or street mural"


This is actually not a street mural, but rather street art. It reflects what is happening in the city a lot, that I already mentioned in earlier posts: use the kids to draw and paint some art on wooden panels sometimes to prevent squatters and other unwanted people to hang around in an empty place, or like here in the Tasmanstraat, to have them show their own vision on things. On this waste ground (former school site), behind a parking lot, kids from three primary schools of the neighborhood have been asked to paint their representation of a tree on 40 wooden panels. This "kunstbos" or "artwoods" will remain until 2009 when a new real estate development will start.

More photos here.

The Hague Daily Photo is heading South for a week in the Alps, so I'll see you again next Sunday. Have a great week enjoying photos from around the world.

Say hello to Sydney's Green Boy

Fénix - Bostonscapes said...

Very original and great choice for this theme. Well done, Lezard.

(I hope they won't be discarded after 2009.)

Denton said...

Very good street art and an admirable project.

Clueless in boston said...

Great project for your artists.

Jilly said...

Super project and all looks very colourful. I love it when kids express themselves in art.

Ineke said...

Good idea!

Southern Heart said...

This is a great idea, and good use of the creative energy of young artists.

George Townboy said...

I like it.

Gordon said...

A great concept; a good use of a temporary unused space. Nice!

Nathalie said...

It's nice if kids learn to paint only where they're told!

Ann (MobayDP) said...

Enjoy your trip! I hope you come back and show us at least one picture of the Alps :-D

brian said...

very cool, i like this...

Isadora said...

A wonderful idea to actually provide a surface rather than the walls. Very original.

Neva said...

I like the street art idea. Very nice.

J.C. said...

Brilliant idea to let children's arts brighten up the whole place!

Ben said...

Fantastic project, It really shines on there.

R&R in The Netherlands said...

Good choice, and have a great time in the Alps!

Ineke said...

Lezard, if you would like that, i could 'push the buttons' for you while you were away. I have done it before with other blogs and others have done the same with mine. It does mean though that you have to have the upcoming days ready before you leave :)

Bye greetings from JoAnn

Lezard said...

Thank you all for your comments! Just came back from a wonderful week and it will take me a couple of days before I can catch up with your posts and comments over the last week.
