Wall Art Learning Series Workshops

WALS is a series of individual workshops designed to equip emerging and mid-career artists and managers working in wall art, to deepen their understanding of the field of mural art and gain practical skills for career success. There is a fee for this program.

Workshops are held throughout the year in locations across Toronto. Topics seek to fulfill needs in the mural arts community. Past topics have included budgets and proposals, working with aerosol, health and safety for muralists, community consultation, and more. If you have a suggestion for a relevant topic please email info@muralroutes.ca.
