Mural at Khadijia School, Nablus

August 2, 2011

Mural teacher Rimah and her volunteers have completed the seventeenth Triple Exposure mural in Nablus. Across three visits to the school, she worked with her team of twelve students, ages ten to twelve (all participants in the mural art class at TYO), to finish this large mural on the external wall of the school for all to see.

Highlighting the importance of creative play as a part of a holistic education, the book in the centre reads ‘My right to play’. The book symbolizes learning and communication, and the sunset landscape, the undeniable beauty of Palestine.

Murals Complete in Askar Boys’ School

July 13, 2011

Triple Exposure mural teacher Rimah and her volunteers went to visit the boys’ school in Askar UNRWA refugee camp, Nablus. Over two visits she worked with fifteen boys, ages 10-11 on two murals in the hallways of the school. Whilst representing the themes of nature and school, these murals have a more kaleidoscopic feel to them, with unexpected colours inside the branches and leaves of the tree, really bringing an extra splash of colour to the walls of Askar.

Like many schools in the West Bank, the school doesn’t have an art teacher or art department, and these were the first murals ever in the school. Even the teachers were interested in how the different colours were mixed and applied. The director of the school liked the mural so much he has asked Rimah to come back and do one more any time.

After they had finished the murals, the boys wanted to go home and show their parents they had been working with paint, and thoroughly enjoyed drawing moustaches on each other. The boys showed so much talent and dedication, seeing the project through to completion with admirable focus. If they had an art teacher or more opportunities to practice, the kids could really work on their art skills and creative thinking, on top of making these vibrant and lasting contributions to their community.

To date, Triple Exposure has completed fifteen murals around Nablus.

Photo of the Week

Here is this week’s top photo, taken by Abrar, age 13, from the advanced photography class. She took her camera to her uncle’s house and caught her cousin Siraj, age 2, creeping up on pigeons in the family coop. The symmetry of the birds and spontaneity of expression make this a great action shot.
