Mural Masterpieces - Robins Nest Childcare

Robins Nest Childcare MuralLocation:
Robins Nest Childcare in 24 Wellington Street, Gisborne.

Raelene Dever and Tim Somerton.

Accessible to public:

Mural theme:
Magical Summer's Day. The concept of a magical summer's day was born on a very cold and grey day. Memories of warm summer days on the beach and the surrounding Gisborne countryside were the starting point.

Background to mural creation:
The exterior of Robins Nest Childcare in Gisborne has been transformed with a mural of a magical summer's day. The mural team of Raelene Dever and Tim Somerton wanted to create a bright and fun backdrop that would both extend the children's play and make the outdoor environment a lot more colourful, fun and inviting. As the sandpit was located conveniently beside the wall where the mural was to be painted, the mural was designed to incorporate the beach and ocean, extending the children's play into the mural itself.

The footpath was also incorporated, carrying on into the mural as a road into the hills so it disappears over into a small town. Part of the mural also features a secret fairy garden - many children now sit in this area and look at the insects, butterflies and fairies that are painted there.
