What We Do
A Look Inside Realia: Students and Community
Within Realia students gain knowledge to further their careers, have hands-on experience in the public art realm, gain valuable experience in teamwork, and create relationships with other artists. Students share an experience that brings together a community using their own creative talents. A mural creates beauty in a neighborhood, and as a result the surrounding community pride elevates, which keeps a community growing and thriving. The mural making process benefits everyone involved from student to community. By looking at murals previously done by Realia, it is easy to see how mural making creates a positive difference in a community.
The links listed to the left will guide you through what goes into making a mural, from the begining of the selection process, planning process, and the actual steps taken to make a finished mural. The Mural Showcase and Proposed Murals pages are a visual collection of the finished murals and other proposed designs. For a brief history of how the art of mural painting began, see the History of Murals page.
