The mural on the courtyard wall of Ebeneser Foundation’s kindergarten is done together with street artist Essi Ruuskanen. The mural is inspired by the games and thoughts of the children in the kindergarten. The children draw and came up with ideas about which animals they want to include in the painting, which kind of nature would fit to the place and what they want to see in the ocean. The mural is designed based on the children’s ideas, so that the children could directly participate in the process of changing their own everyday environment.
Colorful mural is an interactive part of children’s games and it brings new opportunities to children’s everyday life and plays. Courtyard’s interactive elements were also applied to the yard’s fence to which various animals made of plywood were attached.
