Project Description

Students will collaborate on temporary or permanent vibrant murals to decorate the halls of the school for years to come!

Expressionism is the use of color, exaggeration, and distortion to convey an emotion, a feeling, a mood. Using vivid color we will create a mural that can either be movable or permanent. I will work with the staff to form an idea about the subject matter. Some possible themes may be arts integration, school community, local community, school rules, wellness encouragement, uplifting quotes and imagery, and positive environmental relationships. I will then create a design that will be transferred to the canvas, panels, or the wall using basic line. After some fun practice painting students will then use their newly acquired painting skills to create a vibrant, expressionist mural for their school. Depending on design, some mixed media additions may be included as well.

Final Product
A long lasting mural to brighten the school for years to come. Special Note: For schools seeking a permanent mural, the artist will work with all participating classrooms to work on one single mural. For sch
