Netherfield Community Coffee Bar
Musicians Mural August 1979

with teenagers from Cripps Lodge Assessment Centre

This Mural, based on a bandstand and musicians theme, was to be painted on the perimeter of the Netherfield public convenience. The bandstand theme was to complement the circular design of the building.

The youngsters had little confidence in their drawing abilities. With the loan of musical instruments and the kids drawing around each others shadows, (see photo), very realistic drawings were achieved which were then incorporated into the design.

Painting the Mural was to be part of the Centre's summer project and an opportunity for them to contribute something to their locality.
