Murals are painted, silkscreened, printed from the computer, mosaiced, laser cut on metal and attached to walls and more! In this course, teachers will be exposed to a range of mediums and techniques used in mural making. In order to develop imagery and understand the process, students will investigate case studies of murals that incorporate mosaic, printmaking and temporary wheat pastes, among other materials including photo/collage based, and printed and hand-drawn/painted. Through drawing, collage, photography, and printmaking, students will learn how these methods can all be used in creating a design. Additionally, students will learn basic Photoshop concepts, which will be used in designing their mural. Sample materials will be presented and discussed and students will be inspired by the range of mediums and possibilities!
