Mural art workshops serve as an interactive means of self-expression, fostering connections among the space, its inhabitants, participants, the artist and the artwork itself.

These workshops consist of two distinct parts. The initial segment entails a comprehensive presentation on the historical evolution of mural art, spanning from the neolithic era to the present day. This is followed by a collaborative brainstorming session to determine the theme for the future mural, culminating in a sketching session where participants contribute their ideas in preparation for its creation. The second part is where the true enjoyment begins.
The process of bringing the mural to life is accompanied by moments of laughter, engaging discussions, and an overwhelming sense of fulfillment upon its completion.
Witnessing the final artwork’s transformative and embellishing effect on its surroundings gives such a great feeling of gratification!
