Murals are an EXCELLENT way for those involved to experience painting, drawing and design outside the confines of the classroom and allows the participants to explore a variety of themes and issues in the knowledge that their work will be shown on a large scale.
Our workshops build skills artistically and personally, helping participants to develop awareness, raise aspirations and attainment and to challenge negative beliefs.
Murals are accessable and can bring both artists and communities together to express something unique and important to them, to exchange stories and experiences or express hope for a shared future. Completed murals that are permanently or temporarily based in the community can be an important and exciting time for the neighbourhood, helping to bring alive an area of deprivation and negativity.
MURALS CAN BE PAINTED ON AN INDOOR WALL, AN OUTDOOR WALL OR ON SEPARATE PANELS WHICH CAN BE TRANSPORTED TO ANY LOCATION.
SIZE NO OBJECT!!
