Introduction to Mural Art

Introduction to Mural Art is a free visual art learning program for all ages and abilities. Participants learn basic art, design, and mural-making skills from professional artists, gaining the skills and confidence to participate in public art projects in their communities.

Introduction to Mural Art is comprised of six workshops, and is hosted approximately three times per year in communities across Toronto. Workshop topics include: drawing & painting techniques, colour theory, design challenges, stencil creation & printing, enlarging techniques and large-scale collaborative final projects. Each program can be adapted to serve the community where it is being presented.

Piece by Piece Mosaics for Seniors

In this program, participants develop mural-making skills with experienced mosaic mural artist Cristina Delago. Participants work on a small mosaic keepsake for themselves as well as a mosaic panel to contribute to a large community mural project, which is usually installed indoors in a community space.

This program provides an opportunity for participants to learn skills that can help with their concentration and memory, improving their well being over time.

The program consists of ten (10) 2.5-hour sessions, where we welcome up to 15 participants with all levels of abilities. These sessions can be delivered in person or virtually.

Mural Routes supplies all materials needed to participate and installs the mosaic mural. The theme of the project is determined in conversation with program partners and participants.

Networking Events

We host networking events for mural artists, arts organizations, mural producers and mural art enthusiasts to gather and make connections. We host these events virtually and in-person, at locations across Toronto.

These events are a great opportunity for artists at different stages in their careers to connect, exchange knowledge and experiences, as well as identify potential opportunities for working together on mural projects.
