ART 230 - Producing Public Murals


Producing Public Murals introduces students to all aspects of mural design and production.  The curriculum will help students develop several practical skills: drawing, painting, understanding logistics, planning strategies/processes, selecting materials, and problem-solving.  Students will identify and evaluate prospective mural sites; study the composition and durability of various paints and sealants; investigate various methodologies for painting and/or installing murals; and, ultimately, participate in the creation of a public mural.  In addition, students will explore the role of murals (and other forms of public art) in the aesthetic, social, and economic revitalization of communities.
