Mural Painting Workshop for Schools and Youth Groups

Street Style Surgery has the big picture in mind with its creative workshops for schools, and so should your students. Get them thinking large with this mural painting art workshop. We have several professional muralists with their individual styles and methods to teach students in the art workshops how to create their own murals as a group.

These art workshops broaden the scope of creative learning experiences, foster a collaborative atmosphere and positive interpersonal relationships. They teach new artistic and interpersonal skills, and develop confidence and self-esteem within students.

These are creative workshops for schools and youth groups that encourage innovative thinking and personal development – little details that create an impressive large painting.

What do people say about this mural painting art workshop?

“Matt worked at Waterside Arts Centre on two sessions with a Primary and a Secondary school as part of a programme of events linked to the Splinter Group exhibition. Matt prepared the sessions thoroughly and arrived on time and kept to our budget for materials."

"His sessions were well researched and he engaged the groups extremely well, utilizing a combination of effective communication skills with practical demonstrations. Both sets of teachers were very impressed and the school children enjoyed the day. I would recommend Matt to you unreservedly and we hope to employ him on other activities in the future”

Julie Clarke, Visual Arts Officer, Waterside Arts Centre

 "Matt worked on a brief visual art project with Creative Partnerships at Accrington Academy. His approach to working with both staff and students was excellent, and thoroughly engaging, and he was equally organised and efficient."

"The work he produced with the students (60 year 7-10 students) was outstanding, engaging the students in a really collaborative process, whilst producing an excellent (and enormous) piece of work that the students were incredibly proud of having made. I look forward to working with Matt again in the near future."
