Botanical murals and public art play an important role in communities as they enhance a city's quality of life by taking the places where we live, work, and love by creating a more welcoming and beautiful place. It also creates a deeper interaction between the community and its natural environment by adding dimension to civic spaces. Lastly, it allows the community to express its identity and values. Botanical murals come in all shapes and sizes, and are painted on a variety of surfaces. During this unique course, students will discover and learn about botanical murals by creating their own mini-botanical murals on up-cycled materials. Students will advance in their painting techniques, compositional skills with a variety of botanical subjects, and their unique artistic expression.
