Introduction to Mural Art is a free visual art learning program for all ages (14+) and skill levels. Professional artists will lead a series of six sessions connecting basic art and design techniques to the practical skills of mural making, empowering community members to participate in public wall art projects. Workshops include: drawing and painting techniques, colour theory, design challenges, stencil design and printing, enlarging techniques, and large-scale collaborative final mural design projects.
This program is offered in partnership with the Toronto Public Library, Fairview Branch, and will be held at the library (35 Fairview Mall Dr., North York), on Saturdays from 1-4pm from May 7th to June 18th, 2016 (excluding Victoria Day weekend). Participation is free and open to all, but spaces are limited and participants are expected to commit to completing the full six sessions.
Participants will not only learn about process of mural making, but will work towards the design of a public mural that reflects the surrounding community. Mural Routes is thrilled to partner with Cultural Hotspot, and to work with artists, participants, and the broader community, to make this mural a reality in the summer of 2016. Participants will have the opportunity not only to contribute to early design and planning, but to volunteer or be employed (through our youth summer mentoring program) in the mural’s execution.
