Mural Routes is excited to partner with SKETCH for our first Introduction to Mural Art of 2017!
Introduction to Mural Art is a free visual art learning program for all skill levels. Professional artists 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 design. While the program focuses on mural techniques, participants will not be working on a wall mural but on large-scale panels.
When: Tuesdays 5:30-8:30pm, January 31 – March 7
Where: Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street, Toronto. Suite 201 (in the SKETCH Project Studio)
Who: In keeping with SKETCH’s youth-focused mission, this program will be open to anyone between the ages of 16 and 29. No previous mural or visual art experience is required.
Registration: Participation is fully subsidized, but participants are expected to commit to all six sessions. To register simply fill out and submit the form below.
Introduction to Mural Art is part of the Mural Art Learning Institute (MURALI), a continuum of training programs in all aspects of mural-making. MURALI is generously supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
SKETCH is a Creative-Enterprise Hub that creates opportunities for young people (ages 16 to 29) living street involved, homeless or otherwise on the margins, to experience the transformative power of the arts; to build leadership and economic self-sufficiency in the arts; and to cultivate social and environmental change through the arts.
