The staff, parents and children at Torridon Primary School have all had a chance to add their mark to an amazing new mural, celebrating a brand new outdoor learning space.

Using ReColour remanufactured paint, that would have otherwise gone to waste, the mural at Torridon Primary School in Lewisham truly represents the children and ethos of the new ‘Creative Corner’. Designed to uplift everyone that sees it, the mural was based on the children posing in superhero positions. The school collaborated with artist Peter Miller (known as Phyneart) to complete the work.

The project was started when the school’s art department wanted to give their children access to an outdoor learning space. Before they could start, they needed affordable paint that was durable and could stand against the Great British weather. ReColour masonry paint, remanufactured by Community RePaint Wirral, was the perfect option. Not only affordable, starting at just ยฃ1 per litre, but the best choice for exterior walls and great for the environment!

ReColour remanufactured paint is created using leftover paint that would have otherwise gone to waste. Our remanufacturing centres filter, treat and blend them to create a range of high-quality emulsions, masonry and chalk furniture paint in large quantities. Since 2015, over 500 organisations have ordered ReColour paint, including charities, schools, community organisations and religious groups.

After the paint was delivered, the artist Phyneart and the children got to work. Taking a few sessions to complete, the mural will now proudly stand in the creative corner for many more years of children to enjoy. Watch a timelapse of the project below:
