About "Paint the Pavement"

The Town of Paradise is launched the province's first-ever Paint the Pavement project in 2016. The project is aimed at building community spirit, encouraging artistic talent, and calming traffic through the use of large street murals. In 2016 and 2017 Students helped 'Paint the Pavement' at  Elizabeth Park Elementary, Holy Family Elementary and Paradise Elementary and Octagon Pond Elementary.

Paint the Pavement initiatives are becoming increasingly popular amongst Canadian and U.S. communities as a means of bringing the attention of drivers to the road through the creation of large and colourful street murals. These murals also create neighbourhood pride as they showcase the talent of local artists and create pleasing visuals throughout communities.


Artists, Jennifer O'Brien-Strapp was selected to work with the students of Paradise schools to design and paint a pavement mural at select locations 

Incorporating ideas from the students, Jennifer developed a design for each school. The students will join Jennifer to paint the designs. This project is weather dependent.
