From Feb. to June 2012, Mural Routes debuted the Step x Step: Introduction to Mural Arts program. The program had three separate components with the overall mission of providing learning and training opportunities for all ages, while improving communities through mural art.
The program involved a variety of community participants and instructors with a diverse background in arts and culture. The three components of the program were:
- St. Dunstan’s Catholic Elementary School Mural
- Step x Step at Toronto Public Library – Kennedy/Eglinton Branch
- Graffiti Workshop
On April 28, 2012, for a one day training event, Mural Routes in community partnership with Toronto Public Library – Albert Campbell District, presented a graffiti workshop conducted by local artist, Michael Reyes. To tie in with the one book in April, Girls Fall Down, and in celebration of Keep Toronto Reading, the workshop engaged youth through reading and public art.
