Schools Mural Benefits

There are many benefits of having a mural painted at school. It is quite common the benefits will be combined with a number of them together.

A quick list of 3 benefits are:

  • Positive messaging
  • Place activation
  • No infrastructural change

Positive messaging

With murals you can use them to encourage and highlight the school values. This can be done creatively through imagery and words.

Or there may be inspirational phrases that could help direct attention to good thoughts.

Place activation

By painting a mural it can change the atmosphere of the space it is painted. Say for example a dank corridor or a large grey wall.

With a colourful and well-planned mural, it will lift the appearance and change the feeling within the space.

No infrastructural change

In general, you will find that having a mural painted is a low-cost solution compared to other infrastructure changes, eg having something built or removed. And would combine aspects of the above benefits too.

Master of School Murals & Workshops

Originally I was trained in fine arts with a focus on illustration, painting and letterpress (hand set typography). Later on I learnt to use Photoshop and Illustrator combined with other modern digital illustration software techniques.

Now with this combination of traditional & digital illustration I focus my work around commercial murals for schools. As a street artist if I can to contribute a positive learning space through art that makes the place more enjoyable for people then my imagination and creativity has served me well.
