Mural Art Career Development

Mural Art Career Development is an intensive program for emerging mural artists and project managers who have completed some previous training. The 60-hour curriculum encompasses a wide range of relevant topics, from discussions of administrative fundamentals to hands-on practice with various mediums. Participants also benefit from a supportive environment with networking and placement opportunities.

Acceptance to the program is by application and subject to a selection process. The curriculum covers a range of skills to prepare students for the workforce, and provides a supportive environment with networking and placement opportunities.

Alumni or other emerging-level artists can be part of our ‘Mural Art Career Development Alumni and Emerging Artists Network’ Facebook group to share relevant job and skill building opportunities, and ask questions in a forum. Request to join the group here
