The Making Of The Mural

The Manu & Noah Mural

The Manu & Noah Mural adorns the dining room at Crowmoor Primary School in Shrewsbury. It was painted under the guidance of Dez Quarréll in the late 1980's. But who painted it?

Was it you?

Was it you? - Yes, but not only us.

It was painted by every child in the school; nursery, infants and juniors. Every teacher, every ancillary, the school meals staff, the caretaker, the cleaners and playground assistants all took up their brushes. That is probably why it's still there today.

The mural was sponsored by Arts Council England, West Midlands, The ASTMS trade union, Manders Paints & Domindo Toolhire.

The pictures illustrating the story were created by pupils from Stokesay Primary School as the result of a Mythstories workshop detailed on the "who's telling the story" page of The Mouse That Grew.
