Off the Wall: Leadership Training in Mural Making

As part of our commitment to education in the field of mural art, Mural Routes is very pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new program, Off the Wall: Leadership Training in Mural Making. This is a Curriculum Program for leadership development in mural art production and project management. Starting on Tuesday May10, the course will have more than 60 hours of in class and hands-on instruction. Classroom sessions will take place at The Hub, Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities, 2660 Eglinton Avenue East.

 The Leadership Training in Mural Making program is free to qualifying youth artists who show a serious interest in furthering their knowledge and skills in mural art. The goal is to increase the professional skill and employability of emerging youth artists in the job market. This initiative is a development of our summer youth mentoring programs and will serve to address the needs of young emerging mural artists in the City ofToronto.

 Students to the program will be selected from applications submitted by April 26, 2011.

 Mural Routes developed the Leadership Training in Mural Making program in partnership with Arts for Children & Youth, Big Brother Big Sisters of Toronto, Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities – Action for Neighbourhood Change and Urban Arts, in consultation with artists and youth.

 We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Government of Ontario through the Programs and Services Branch of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture and the City ofTorontothrough the Innovation, Opportunity & Prosperity Program.

More updates later as students are enrolled and the program gets under way.
