Discussing a mural design

Want a Mural?

Painting a mural can be a big undertaking, and in order to get one painted for your business or organization there are certain criteria that must be met. The mural must be beneficial to both the community and the students, we do not do commercial sign painting, only community murals. The mural must be designed and painted by students. Although you may have a great design or idea for the mural, part of the focus of the mural program is the complete mural creation process for the students involved.

What Will It Cost?

There is no set price for the paintings and it can vary depending on the size, location, and subject of the painting. While these murals benefit everyone that participates, Kim Martinez strongly believes that all artists need to be compensated for their art, and this is no different. Participating students receive college credit so they cannot be paid directly, but at the end of the year the money earned is used to take the class on a trip to see art in other locations.
