Digital mural

Paint the town

Lesson overview

Virtual public artwork

Public artworks reflect the values of our societies and add meaning and beauty to community spaces. Put this challenge in the hands of students, and see what they create.

Start with exploring your community and finding potential spaces. Then design and create a digital mural and experiment with blend modes to help it blend into the environment. If you’re feeling bold, you can take it further and write a proposal to turn your design into a reality!
