LMS wallpaper: a collaboration with the children of Litchfield Montessori School

We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with the children of the Litchfield Montessori School to create a digitally printed wallpaper to be auctioned off at a school fundraiser.

Every student, from toddler to 6th grade, painted a small non-objective painting which was given to us as the artwork and inspiration for the wallpaper. We then had the pleasurable task of creating a custom, repeatable pattern featuring each student work.

In the process of scanning and digitizing the paintings, we were able to enjoy the unique quality of each piece. We could see the personalities of each of the children in their brush strokes and color choices. Some created a motif with lines and shapes while others painted fields of their favorite hues.

We chose to highlight the individualism of each child by creating a gridded polka dot pattern with each painting as its own dot. By digitally printing this wallpaper, we were able to properly represent the vibrant colors and painterly nature of the work.

It was a joy and honor to collaborate with the children of the Litchfield Montessori School. There was a feeling of gratification in watching the kids pick out their paintings and beg their parents to be the winning bidder. Ultimately, we were so pleased to be able to contribute to the school by creating a wallpaper that reflects the true beauty of the nurturing Montessori community.
