Painting Rockhampton: Youth Mural Project

Have you ever wished to paint big on a public building? Here is your chance to learn how to plan, design, stencil and paint a mural.

This is an exciting opportunity to get paint not just on your hands but on a fresh new mural in our city. You will be guided and supported by the artist educator throughout the project.

All participants will get to design and create a stencil that the group will paint into the main design. During the project, you will mix and make colour using brushes as well as using spray paints and stencils.

Rockhampton Art Gallery’s Art Bus will transport participants from Rockhampton Art Gallery to the mural site each day and return them to the Art Gallery prior to the 3pm pick-up time. All mural painting materials, stencils, gazebos, an esky, a water dispenser, and sunscreen will be provided.
