The recent mural at Snowy Mountains Grammar School showcases snowy landscapes and native animals, painted by artists Mike Shankster and Arina Apostolova. The mural captures the stunning beauty of the Snowy Mountains region, featuring snow-capped peaks and a variety of indigenous wildlife.

Mike Shankster and Arina Apostolova have skillfully brought the mural to life with their artistic talent, using vibrant colours and intricate details. From graceful snow leopards traversing the frost-covered terrain to majestic eagles soaring against the backdrop of a pristine mountain vista, every aspect of the mural tells a story of resilience and harmony within the natural world.

The mural not only enhances the school’s environment but also serves as an educational tool, inspiring curiosity and appreciation for the unique ecosystem of the Snowy Mountains among students and visitors. It highlights the power of art to connect us with nature, fostering a deeper understanding of our environment and the importance of conservation efforts to preserve it for future generations.
