Overview & Curriculum
High school students will help design and paint a large scale work of public art in Downtown Lynchburg. This project will incorporate thoughtful discussion of contemporary and historical public art works, hands-on preparation, and installation of a work of public art.
Teens will be given the chance to submit their ideas for the design of the mural before the project begins! On the first day of class we will reveal the design, have a discussion about the history and logistics of public art and get to work transfering the design to the mural spot. By Friday, a new piece of public art will be revealed in Downtown Lynchburg.
This project is from 9:00am - 3:00pm starting Monday, June 20 and ending Friday, June 24. Much of the time will be spent outside, so students should dress accordingly for warm weather and bring water bottles and a packed lunch.
This project is for students ages 14 to 19 (rising 9th through 12th grades). The early registration fee is $225 until May 16, and $250 afterwards.
Scholarships are available by application on the Scholarships tab. The application period closes May 16 and applicants will be notified by June 6.
