shipping container

the white room

Oh Trish, Sarah, Rachel and Marg, it looks sooooo good!  All your organising has paid off already … and Art4All hasn’t even started yet!

On the weekend at the working bee we cleared out the shipping container that is on permanent loan from Linfox to the school. On Monday Steve came and painted it white (thanks Steve). Yesterday the furniture went in.

Marg bought the bed from a friend (it’s much better than the one I found). Some frames came from the op shop. The chairs are second hand, there’s some old shirts … it’s recycled heaven.

And it looks just like Van Gogh’s bedroom. But white.  See?

Today Marg is going to take each class in to the ‘dot room’ and each student will get to stick up JUST ONE DOT … a taster of what’s going to happen at Art4All. And to start the dot ball rolling …

Mind you, we have 1000s of dots to put up over the weekend, maybe 6000 or more.  And some are really big … 10cm wide.   So I imagine at Art4All everyone will be given a sheet of dots, not just one.

How fun. I can hardly wait to add some dots myself … I hope I get a BIG one.

Note the dotty path leading to the container … that’s my contribution. I cut the dots out of the same fake grass that went down under Milkshake. And then enlisted some helpers to paint (thanks kids)!!!
