High School Mural Workshop
Batemans Bay High School wanted to have a mural workshop at their school.
The mural workshop was set up as a one-day event. The students contributed to the design process and learnt some of the basic skills and techniques required for painting the mural.
Mural Workshop Process
As a part of the workshop with the students, we looked at three steps for creating the mural.
- What does space feel like? (make note of the positives and negatives)
- Who uses the space, who should the mural be for?
- What do we want the mural to reflect within the space?
The mural workshop was for year 11 students and the area for painting a mural was in the senior area. The area was surrounded by grey painted walls so a mural that would be vibrant was requested to give the area some uplift.
Before the actual mural day of painting, we spent a few hours going over things the students would like for the mural to reflect. I collected the ideas and went away and then submitted 3 concepts back to the students based on their input.
Day of Painting
On the day of the mural, the students were responsible for the complete painting of the mural with guidance in regards to the best way to approach the mural painting.
The mural was painted onto a brick wall at the Batemans Bay High School in the senior’s area.
