A group of young Hungarian volunteers painted animals, houses and natural background on the walls of a kindergarten at the small village of Helemba in Slovakia. The event was organised in the frames of our Coffee To Go prorgam series.
The moments of the arrival: the whole group and a ladder had enough place inside the minibus.
Discussion: what should we paint on the wall?
The first colours appear on the wall while the audience is staring at the procedure in silence.
From the laptop to the field. An old lady and a deer are the main characters of the child tale, which will be painted on the wall of one of the rooms.
The paint not only gets on the wall…
Mass production of flowers.
In the other room the logo of the kindergarten is being painted on the wall.

Help from the background: music and some food.
The child tale continues on the other wall.
The kindergarten techer posing in the local folk dress.
And the scene soon gets to the wall.
Smiling sun over the woods and meadows.
And at the same time the sun starts to shine in reality as well.
Rainbow colours at the table.
Some of the ideas for the figures come from child books. Right now, the lines of a squirrel are drawn on the wall.
The main characters in spotlight: the old lady and the deer
Hedgehog and squirell on the field.
The Malteser shield also appears on one of the houses.
This tired owl is an important part of the room where the kids regularly take their afternoon nap.
