Mural PartnersA mural is a treasure of beauty and creativity. It allows a direct encounter with art on a daily basis, stimulating learning, self-reflection, and awareness. Through themes of union and togetherness, students will know the significance of the individual's role as a unique, essential, and substantive member of the community.
Serving as a platform for self-empowerment and accomplishment, students will work with the Teaching Artist to plan and complete a large-scale work of art. This strengthens individual and universal expression, enabling creativity and problem-solving through technical and artistic experience. Students will practice teamwork and respect through conceptual collaboration, class discussion, small-group participation, and a one-pointed vision of success.
Josh will work with you and your students to design and create a professional-level mural painted by students. Typically, a mural project involves numerous sessions including 1-2 sessions of brainstorming, researching source images, and finalizing a design idea. This process is led by the teaching artist with input and direction from students. The Teaching Artist then works with students to address practical methods, techniques, and problem solving while painting the mural in the final sessions.
Large-scale projects of this sort require thorough coordination and advance notice. Please contact our office right away if you are interested in a mural project.
