The Growing Tree

Todays mission was to create a mural of a tree with some recycled wood pallets to be used as plant holders to go in the tree. This would add to the garden being created in front of the piece. Also included on the wall were 2 flowers made from recycled hubcaps which were painted by pupils from Thabisang Primary School in Orlando West, Soweto. We had 1 flower painted by children from Alaska Informal Settlement in Mamelodi East, South Africa.
These were then finished by our guest artist M.P. Chuka Umanna who added some finishing touches to the final design.
Our guest artists for painting the plant holders included locals and some friends from South Korea.Thanks to ,, and M.P Chuka Umanna.
