Wall Art Learning Series for Mural Routes Members

WALS Member Sessions Poster - NEW

Mural Routes is excited to announce the next four sessions in our Wall Art Learning Series!

As a thank you to our members, these exclusive sessions will be open to Mural Routes members only, and will be completely free.

WALS (Wall Art Learning Series) consists of professional development workshops as part of Mural Routes’ Mural Art Learning Institute (MURALI). The Wall Art Learning Series features a sequence of talks designed to better equip emerging and mid-career artists working in wall art, deepening their understanding of the field and gaining technical skills for career success. The program requires no commitment to attend multiple sessions; all topics are chosen based on artist needs and knowledge gaps in the field, and artists are free to choose those topics that are most relevant to their practice and current level of knowledge. Additional WALS 2016 workshops will be open to the public – stay tuned to the blog for upcoming announcements in the coming months.

Member exclusives will feature:

  • Budgets and Funding for Murals – May 10
    • Karin Eaton, Executive & Artistic Director of Mural Routes
    • Finding funding, planning pricing, and managing budgets- from materials to artist fees
  • Site Analysis for Murals May 24
    • Susan Filshie, former Urban Planner, City of Toronto
