Murals with Corrie Atkinson McLeod

The murals are interactive projects which have taken place in the schools and most recently in the community, where both the children and Elders have worked together to create four by eight mosaics. The mosaic design lends itself to allowing each person in the class to fully contribute and participate. The murals capture and express a collaborative message inspired by the children and their community. The sky is the limit with this project.

Corrie Atkinson McLeod

Corrie Atkinson McLeod moved back to the Yukon in 2006 to pursue a career in Nursing. However she has been creating murals with schools in Saskatchewan and the Yukon for eleven years. Initially the murals where inspired by a desire as a young mother wanting to participate in her children’s education. The murals have since taken on a life of their own. These are interactive projects which have taken place in the schools and most recently in the community, where both the children and Elders have worked together to create four by eight mosaics. Artist is available for Sky is the Limit projects.
