With the objective to go through what we’ve done in Edirne, a meeting was organized by our CAS coordinator Yeşim Irmak Bozkurt. We evaluated the trip and briefly discussed our strengths and weaknesses. Each participant school in this project had been given different responsibilities. Our school’s responsibility is to improve the playground of the school and develop the students’ art skills. Mr. Dew had some great ideas about recreating the vast playground such as sketching a colorful hopscotch to the ground and painting the empty walls of the school. We are going to use the patterns that we’ve captured in Edirne (2nd day) to create a design for the walls. Mr. Dew is planning to project these only just-designed photographs to the walls for us to paint. By that, the school will have a unique taste of visual quality that includes the city’s own ambiance or culture. But first, we should get together in the future to organize these photographs and create a design.

Mr. Dew also provided a list of materials to turn his ideas into reality:

For playground

  • Chalk
  • Duct tape/ masking tape
  • Old Rags
  • Ball of string
  • Outdoor Paint (three colors)
  • Large straight edge (1 meter at least)
  • Paint Stir (old sticks)
  • Narrow Paint Roller
  • Paint Brushes
  • 100 ft. Measuring Tape
  • Turps (to clean brushes)


For mural

  • Chalk
  • Masking tape
  • Old Rags
  • Emulsion (water-based) Paint (three colors minimum)
  • Paint Stir (old sticks)
  • Narrow Paint Roller
  • Paint Brushes
  • 100 ft. Measuring Tape

However, we need to find sponsors to effort all of these materials. But first, we need to get permission from our school administration to search for sponsors. I volunteered to write a petition to our school administration about this topic. So, it is my responsibility to get permission from our headmaster. We will be talking about it in the next few weeks: Petition
