Monarch butterfly tank mural at Rapid Bay Primary School, 'Milly Monarch' by Sia Booth launched on December 8

The Monarch butterfly mural on a tank at Rapid Bay has emerged from its cocoon as a beautiful masterpiece.

Students from the primary school worked with local artist Sia Booth to come up with a design promoting the butterfly which is so prominent in the town and surrounds.

The design was then transferred onto the tank, which sits at the start of the road to the school and supplies water to the campground.

Mrs Booth was thrilled with the finished project.

“It showcases the work of the Rapid Bay students, and the community at large,” she said.

“There are 50 individual pieces combining to make one masterpiece.”

She said everyone who participated enjoyed being involved.

It is not the first time the school and Mrs Booth have partnered to work on an art project. In 2016, students decorated light pole foundations on the Rapid Bay jetty.

District Council of Yankalilla mayor Glen Rowlands officially opened the mural and said all involved should be proud of their work.

“The community has come together and made a plain tank beautiful,” Mr Rowlands said.

The council granted the project funding through the Community Grants program which helped bring it to life.

“I feel really privileged that council was able to help arrange this,” he said.
