History of the Project...
|The project first
started when Les Elvin, Community Artist, thought about setting up a Mural
Exchange project for local schools in Breightmet.
This was the first Mural sent from Marina View, you can see the original painting on the wall!
|The original artwork was then re created by Les and children on a metal shutter on local shops.|
|St. Andrew's School was then commissioned to design a large mural which depicts life in Bolton during Victorian Times and the Industrial Revolution.|
|Children started their designs to be sent electronically to Marina View School, Auckland, New Zealand.|
|Meanwhile, Les travels to New Zealand to visit relatives and Marina View School!|
