GROW WITH DUNBAR...is the new Mural at Dunbar School near Sonoma. 30 feet of shared fun was created by painting with 250 children k-5. The four day on-site process led by FLOCKworks Artist Janet Self was a school wide celebration with everyone --children, parents, teachers and staff-- enjoying the unfolding painting.

Inspired by painter Georgia O'Keeffe, the concept turned scale on its head with eight giant flowers and tiny "ant-sized" people. A field of flowers wraps the entire design. Photos and samples of real flowers provided focus, while the children's creative imagination gave a lively richness to the work.
The project was supported with funds from Sonoma Plein Air Foundation . The school's Art Teacher Beth Beirmann organized the project, which involved small groups of children coming to share in the work on the mural. The Mural adds a new spirit right at the center of the school.
