MINDARIE Primary School students collaborated with artist Jahne Rees to design a public art piece for Catalina estate.

Tamala Park Regional Council commissioned the Scape-ism owner to design a work that will be installed in the beach park in Mindarie.

Rees held a workshop at the school with students brainstorming ideas then tracing their bodies in various positions on large format paper.

They cut out the outlines, which were arranged to create a narrative along a wall, and Rees has since been finalising the design.

It will be sandblasted onto pre-cast concrete panels located at the rear of the climbing walls within the Catalina Beach Park.

Rees said the collaborative design process with the school children was a “great metaphor for building community”.

Developer Satterley’s chief executive Nigel Satterley said the artwork would help bring a focus on creating spaces for social interaction between neighbours, family and friends.

Catalina is being developed by the Tamala Park Regional Council, which includes the cities of Joondalup, Perth, Stirling, Vincent and Wanneroo and the towns of Cambridge and Victoria Park.
