Large Scale Mural Painting

large

Think big! Art is not always made in the studio or meant to be in a gallery. Students will learn about mural and street art pieces to gain inspiration in creating their own personal and portable largescale paintings. Over the course of the week, students learn to stretch their own canvases, paint on different materials, tool safety, working with scale, composition, and color design in addition to drawing and painting techniques. Students are encouraged to create expressive, large-scale pieces that reflect their own design style. This group creates a welcoming and inclusive environment for teens to feel confident in creative expression.

Students learn and understand musicality along with the rhythm and movement. Throughout the week, students develop and teach their own choreography.
