Mural Making

July 22 – August 2

Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm
Registration: $300
Open to all ages

Imagine a colorful world brightening the walls of the NACC.  Better yet, imagine a world hidden inside the walls! Let’s create it together. 

Local artist/muralist, Christina Francis (whose work has been featured on the Discover Niagara Shuttle), will lead students through the creation of an immersive mural that peels the walls away to reveal a vibrant world blooming from NACC’s Kid’s Corner.  To start, Christy and students will work together to sketch the new mural and refine the design.  From there, the group will put paint brushes to “canvas” to bring the mural to life.
