Two very talented street art and design artists have helped the Murrabit Group School students capture the natural world and add some colour to the school. Melbourne based Chuck Mayfield and Brian Itch travel the world with their skills, completing works at festivals, schools, shopping centres, churches, buildings, glow laser tag parlours, video games and hosting their own exhibitions. They have also completed smaller silos on the silo trail.

The pair brainstormed with the Murrabit Group School students and quickly formed a design which they then completed within two very long days. The students watched in awe at the skills that turned the plain walls into credible masterpieces. Students also had their chance to do an apron and channel their own Picasso.
The mural included local endangered species, including the trout cod, bittern and other fish and birds. Even the beautiful local bridge and the Murray River got a feature. The eremophila flower from the garden was also recreated. The murals bring creativity, colour and joy to the school.
