The Community Mural Project is an opportunity for youth to contribute a public mural to the community, while learning valuable concepts and developing meaningful skills. 

The project is a journey. The group will identify a mural site, engage with the site's community and stakeholders, work together to draft a design, create a public mural, and then celebrate the achievement with a community ceremony unveiling the work.

Participants enjoy hands-on mural planning and painting, engaging and collaborating with the community, and technical and creative mentorship.
