MURAL //

BRIEF

Materials: acrylic exterior paint and spray paint

BRIEF

• school appropriate
• collaborate
• theme of ‘connection’ – connection to our land, recognition of the cultures that shape our school and who we are as a community.

Things to consider:
Who is this mural for?
Why are we painting it?
What overall outcome do we want?
How do we want students to 'feel'?

Tricky bits:
• Red/orange fades fast
• 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
• Time frame (five paint days)
• 6 x student helpers per day (yr, 4,6,8,10,12)
