BRIEF

Materials: acrylic exterior paint and spray paint

BRIEF

• school appropriate
• collaborate
• leave a legacy

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 (one paint day)

DEVELOPMENT

CONCEPTS

MURAL PROCESS

• measure / view the wall / take photos (for mock ups)
• take a brief from the client

• production timeline for project

• develop concepts (soooo time consuming)
• make changes to concepts... then more changes... and more...
• get sign off on mural design
• buy supplies
• develop a production plan for paint day / prep for painting
• paint (the fun part)!
