The Youth Express has a big picture in mind with its creative mural projects and workshops for young people. We want to get them thinking large with this mural painting initiative. Large in themselves and in their capacity to dream and be the best they can be.
These mural workshops broaden the scope of creative learning experiences, provide a collaborative atmosphere in which to foster both positive interpersonal relationships, develop social skills and help enhance confidence and self-esteem within young people.
The creative workshops are designed to encourage creative and innovative thinking and personal development. Our professional designers and muralists share their individual techniques, styles and methods to teach students how to create their own murals as a group.
Particants gain an understanding of a wide range of painting techniques and material processes while developing a broader scope of creative learning experiences.
The project provides young people an opportunity to be creative and to express themselves in a fun and easy going environment where all thoughts, opinions and ideas are encouraged and welcomed.
The mentorship provided by professional artists will assist and encourage young participants to develop new skills and discover hidden talents. All young participants will be guided and supported throughout the entire projects development. Additional skills gained include: communicating effectively within a collaborative work group situation; presentation skills and the ability to work in teams.
