***This program is fully booked for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year; please let us know if you are interested in bringing Jessilyn to your school in 2020-21!***
While painting the mural together in groups, we will learn elements of art, drawing and painting techniques and how to work collaboratively to make a piece of history and culture for the school to last decades. I work with staff to determine the theme of the mural and often design murals for schools with themes in natural history/local flora and fauna, community, and school values. It is also successful to design from your school curriculum and use the mural as a teaching tool while we paint.
Long lasting mural for school.
