MISSION VIEJO – Three local moms have taken their children’s playground from drab to “fab.”
The women, a group of parents at Del Lago Elementary, convinced the school principal to give the campus’ grey brick handball court a makeover, using San Clemente artist Drew Brophy’s work “Local Surfers” as inspiration.
The painting features two dolphins catching a vibrant blue wave while a glowing orange sun shines above them.
Work started on Monday, and the women hope to wrap it up within a week, said Courtney Arlow, who came up with the project.
“There’s no art program anymore. Any art programs the kids get are sponsored by the PTA, or put into lesson plans,” she said. “We just want to bring art into their lives and inspire them.”
