Mural Making Camp

Have you ever felt inspired to make a mural but weren't sure how to begin or felt daunted by the logistics? Quit just dreaming big and start making it big! Join the Lyceum this summer and make a mural!

This course will guide participants in creating a 4 panel mural from concept to completion. Discussion sessions will examine: Why make murals? What are they made out of? How does an artist get from topic to design? How do you coordinate mural production? 
Completion will equip aspiring mural makers with the skills they need to create vivid, impactful murals in their own communities. 

Participants will learn:
•    different mural making methods
•    how to develop a design concept into a mural design
•    basic color theory, paint mixing and how to handle brushes
•    to manage a group mural site
•    team dynamics 

Last year's mural is on display at The Watershed Institute at CSUMB!
