The new mural is a wonderful addition to our school community. The gymnasium is a high-profile public space which now communicates our vision of 'Eagle Pride' to all. We are very pleased with Dean's work and enjoyed the collaborative process that it involved.
When a Middle School decides to revision and focus on their Identity and Sense of Place many discussions ensue. Hillcrest Middle finally landed on their connection to Mundy Park in Coquitlam and Birds were identified as the perfect addition to the Team Colours. When we reached out to Dean Lauze and D’Arts to assist us in designing and creating the vision for our school gym, we could not have dreamed of the miraculous outcome. Dean listened to Our story and his first design mockups of the murals with Mundy Park, team colours and birds blew us away. The colours are vibrant, the images remarkable, stepping into Hillcrest’s gym is considered an experience worth noting. Dean understood our community and captured the essence of all these connections. The final product was nothing short of breathtaking. Many staff, upon seeing it for the first time used the word, ‘Reverence.' Our gym has been transformed into a gathering place. Dean honoured Hillcrest’s journey. Our students, staff and parents are so grateful.
Working with Dean has been a great creative experience! We have done 95% of our hospital based murals with him and the professionalism and dedication to our projects has been incredible. The breadth of artistic coverage, enthusiasm, and outstanding work ethic has been a breath of fresh air. Without hesitation, we will continue to use Dean for other mural based projects. Thanks Dean (and team), Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation .
The mural is nothing short of spectacular! It has been amazing to watch the progress.
We held parent teacher interviews last night and it is safe to say that the parents were in awe of the work that was done in our gymnasium. Thanks for your vision and committment to perfection.
This is the second time I have been involved with Dean in transforming a gym. In both cases, we trusted him as a contractor, a technician, an artist and a visionary, and his work has been spectacular. I would recommend D’Arts to anyone who wants to add energy and pride to their school.
After many years of dull and boring gym walls at Walnut Grove Secondary, the decision was made to completely overhaul them. D'Arts came to our rescue offering a very attractive design! The images in our gym have plenty of detail, color and flare. We are extremely pleased with how realistic and appropriately suited they are to our school colours and logo! Dean was exceptional in his workmanship and more than accommodated our requests in a very professional manner. I would highly recommend D'Arts to all those desiring the best artwork money can buy.
Our school has been very involved for the past 4 years working with Dean Lauze and his team to create an updated and beautiful new logo, which became a mural on the front of our building. Our students were fascinated with his transformation of the front of our school and appreciated his openness to questions from them about his work. After that was completed, we worked with Dean to develop a wrap around gym mural that represented our school and its relationship with the environment and the land. Dean and his team worked diligently in full secrecy to create an awe-inspiring atmosphere that brought excitement, pride and even tears to our community when we unveiled his work. Dean is an exceptional artist who is thoughtful, caring and committed to building an inclusive process for all members of our community. He and his team go above and beyond and communicate daily and often. Our school community of students, staff and parents highly recommends Dean Lauze as the best choice for a mural or logo at your site.
Dean was outstanding to work with. Not only was his artwork breathtaking, but it was on time and on budget. We can not wait to get back to do other projects at the school.
Thanks to D'Arts for capturing the 'Spirit of the Cubs' and leaving a beautiful legacy for future generations.
