The aim of Leadership Training is to provide a subsidized program free of cost and accessible training for leadership development and youth entrepreneurs in the field of mural art. It is designed to address the needs of young emerging mural artists, to prepare them for the workforce; to provide them with the important skills needed, that go beyond what they learn in school art programs and to enhance the on-the-wall experience they have gained through employment in summer mural programs. This is an intensive approximately 60 hour curriculum course that includes workshops delivered by professionals in various aspects of mural painting, installation and restoration, as well as training in community, business and client relation skills. While the focus of this program is mural art, a number of other transferable skills will be learned that can be used in any large scale creative enterprise.
This subsidized course will be offered at no cost to qualified participants, who will be selected through an application and interview process. Successful candidates will be required to sign a contract of commitment to the program which will outline expectations and responsibilities.
Each participant will complete the training with an independent study assignment to create a theme, design and method of application or project proposal for a specific site.
This course is offered at no cost to participants thanks to the support of Ontario Trillium Foundation. Mural Routes would also like to thank our partners at Toronto Public Library and East End Arts for co-hosting the program.
