Spanish artist Guillen who is living in Crans-Montana had a difficult task, create a nice professional looking wall piece only with primary school children. But who could he achieve it? The students are to small to handle a can, and we know how clean a 4/5 year works once he has paint on site.
But Guillen had an idea, let them create the whole wall by themselves, students were given the task to create shapes- circles, squares, triangles,…- in 3d material. Guillen then used these forms as stencils to paint outlines and the students filled them out.
The shapes were the first step of the wall, the second was even more fun for the kids.
Let the creativity begin, Guillen drew a snake and each children had a scale to fill out with a drawing that was straight from his imagination.
