A Week to Remember at East-West International School



In the humid throng of Phnom Penh, where tradition meets innovation, the East-West School stands as a beacon of youthful creativity and ambition. In the last few weeks, the school's bland walls around the basketball court have been transformed into vibrant murals, encapsulating dreams, talent, and a thunderous spirit that resonates well beyond its campus. Guided by Sra’Art and Astral Soup Art Director - Big Tim, an artist whose name is synonymous with community and color, students embarked on a transformative journey. This event wasn't just about painting; it was a lesson in bravery, expression, and the power of collaboration.


The Beginning of a Masterpiece

The adventure began with visions and sketches. With the use of digital projections, images danced on the walls, as students traced the outlines of their future masterpiece. Big Tim wasn't just there to instruct; he was there to inspire, encouraging each student to see the wall as not just a canvas but as a conversation with the world.


A Symphony of Colors and Learning

By the second day, the East-West School was alive with the hustle and bustle of young artists at work. Mixing colors, mastering brush techniques, and learning to capture the essence of their collective spirit on the wall. The process was a revelation, not only in technique but in the discovery of each student's unique voice.


The Finale: Thunder Comes to Life

The final day was a crescendo of activity, with the students adding lightning effects and fine details, their confidence and skills visibly blooming. The word 'THUNDER,' emblazoned across the mural, became a symbol of their unity, creativity, and undaunted spirit. This mural, more than a display of talent, stood as a declaration of identity and pride for the entire school.

The transformation of the East-West School's wall is a testament to the magic that happens when creativity, mentorship, and community spirit converge. It's a reminder that art has the power to inspire, transform, and unite us in the most unexpected ways.
