Event description

Description

You're a creative human - whether you paint, or you're a digital designer, collage-master or photographer. You have the talent and you've been thinking about how you might turn your current skills into money-making murals. But murals sound like a big, multi-faceted project right? Wrong. The Business of Murals workshop will take you through the step-by-step process of finding clients, taking briefs, creating mural-worthy works, getting your work onto the wall and finishing the project professionally, confidently and safely.

The Business of Murals is a one-day workshop that will provide you with the knowledge, confidence and practical experience to add 'murals' to your creative business offering.

The workshop covers the mural process from client enquiry to final coating on the mural, including:
• Taking a brief
• Materials, tools, estimating material costs

• Pricing, quoting, contracts and safety training courses
• Getting your mural design up onto the wall (several different techniques)
• Protecting the surface of your completed mural

• Production timelines, logistics and contracting artist assistants
• Finding mural work, call outs and grants
• Community engagement

The practical side of the workshop involves: taking a brief, creating a mural design and painting it onto a wall at the Maranatha Camp. The practical skills covered include:
• Designing a mural that will transfer onto a wall
• Developing a production plan and site logistics/safety
• Using spray paint/exterior paint/paint gun/anti graffiti
• Practising the various 'design onto wall' techniques
• Painting the mural

The mural painting and production, as well as the finished mural will be professionally photographed. These photographs will be available to each workshop participant to add to their portfolio/mural offering for their business.

All materials are supplied.
A light lunch will be provided. We will be in touch prior to the workshop to ask about food allergies/preferences.
Please wear clothes that love to get covered in paint, a wide-brim hat, close-toed shoes and sunscreen.

FAQs

What happens if the weather is bad?

If the weather forecasts predict very heavy rain, the workshop will be postponed to another date. Participants will be notified at least 24 hours prior to the workshop.

What if I love painting but I'm not as good as everyone else in the workshop?

You've come to the right place - all artists think this! Everyone has something creatively different to offer. You might not have the brush technique but you might nail the mural composition. You're at the workshop to learn - and not just from me. You'll be learning from everyone who attends. You will leave the workshop feeling more confident in your own skills and ready to practise your new skills too.

I don't have a business but I would like to learn how to paint murals. Is this workshop for me?

It certainly is. Painting murals is about learning new creative skills, strategy, practise and the courage to get your design on the wall. You will learn all this during the workshop.

Are numbers to this workshop limited?

Yes. We can only accommodate a maximum of 12 people to ensure everyone gets one-on-one time and the opportunity to work with all tools and techniques.

I am a teacher. Would this workshop be considered a Personal Development Course?

Yes. After this workshop you will have the knowledge and confidence to help students take briefs, develop designs and paint murals. I will be presenting a number of examples and practical skills which can be used in lesson plans. A tax receipt will be emailed to you once payment is made for reimbursement by your school.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There is no minimum age for this workshop but we do suggest 16 years and older.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is parking everywhere! A map to Maranatha Camp, where to park and meet within the camp will be emailed to all ticket holders the week prior to the workshop.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

You can contact Sarah at sarah@sculleydesign.com if you have any questions.
