Murals that inspire reading/ literacy! This is the perfect way to bring to life that specific book the class or
individual students are reading. A truly excellent timeless way to create buzz for students’ enthusiasm to read
and install conversation on books they are reading. Students will learn mural painting techniques, design
process to execute the mural and use typography and transfer stencils to create a professional piece of
artwork they can be proud of. They will be guided step by step to completion. Let’s get the brushes out to
inspire our young creatives through the books they read.
