This must be why you have such beautiful tile there...you start the children at a very young age in making and appreciating this beautiful art form.

Red fish!! I love the colors and the lines. What a lovely mural for the children.

Very well done. The children -- and especially their parents -- should be very proud. And tile is he perfect medium for this expression of art in Portugal.

Genie said...

I agree with brattcat -- start the children early. Thanks for showing us this creative art.

I'm a sucker for art. This is just great!

VP said...

Joyous and well done! Why everywhere they don't do more of this instead of ugly graffiti?

Joan Elizabeth said...

Looks bright and fun. Much better than graffiti

T. Becque said...

Done by children - impressive! I hope no one ruins it with graffiti...

You're funny, paying truck drivers :) I assure you that did not happen. In fact, I just don't see that as a good scenario at all!

So colorful and cheerful! No wonder your tile artisans are so fantastic — you start them young!

Dina said...

By students?? Good for them!
These fish are fun.
BTW, in the Bible Jonah was swallowed by a big fish (in Hebrew, dag gadol), not necessarily a whale.

I love it! Every school should let their students paint/decorate the walls of their school.
