MURAL //

BRIEF

Materials: acrylic exterior paint / spray paint
Wall size: 7.3m wide x 3.6m high 


BRIEF
• students to design & paint

Things to consider:
Who is this mural for?
Why are we painting it?


Tricky bits:
• Too many colours looks like it belongs in a kindy
• Large blocks of colour may get tagged
• Too much detail will not be seen from afar
• Location of the wall & access
• Time frame to paint
 (2 days)
• Safety / access / timing
