The Master The Walls Program is a school mural program for low socio economic high schools who could not otherwise afford to have a street artist visit the school. The Program has been funded by The Matana Foundation for Young People, whose vision is to create a more just society by giving every young person in Australia an equal opportunity to access the skills to negotiate life’s journey.
Utilising some of Australia’s most popular professional street artists, the Master The Walls Program teaches mural painting and shares vocational knowledge about the creative profession of mural painting.
In addition to learning mural painting skills, students will gain an understanding of the day-to-day business of full time professional muralist and how the artist began their career.
The artist will work with students to paint a mural at the school. Afterwards, a student will be selected by the school for a work experience opportunity which will involve assisting the artist to paint an additional mural in the local community.
