Calling All Young Artists-Paint a Public Mural!

May 4 @ 9:00 am - May 18 @ 4:00 pm

$3 – $10

Young artists ages 8-11: Join us for three Saturdays in May – here’s your chance to learn about today’s popular art form – mural painting. Join mural artist Colin Coyle in creating 6’x4′ mural panels that will be showcased at the Peoria Zoo this summer.  Young artists will learn about the role of public art and how murals are made before drawing out some ideas. Artists will work in teams to paint their finished murals on the 6’x4′ boards. The mural boards will be displayed proudly for the public on the zoo fence.  Big Picture Peoria and Peoria Park District are teaming up to make this opportunity possible.
Only $10 for three sessions with the artist!
