The ‘Skipton School Mural Project - produced by ArtHouse Jersey’ will see local artists work together with school children and the wider Jersey community to develop up to 15 different murals at schools across the island. The project, sponsored by Skipton International, aims to inspire young people to engage with art and create murals with lasting impact for the Jersey community.
At ArtHouse Jersey, we have supported the significant increase of street art across the island by commissioning murals on a range of properties throughout St. Helier as part of the Skipton Art Series. Now, this exciting new project will see street art expand across all areas of the island for the benefit of local children and the wider community.
We are looking for artists and schools to apply to be involved with the project and the application window closes on February 4th, 2019.
As part of the project, some of the most talented artists in our community will go into schools across the island to run workshops where children will make art that will then inspire the design of the mural at their school. We are aiming for up to one thousand students to benefit directly from their participation in the project and that the work created will have a lasting impact on them, as well as on their peers, parents and the wider school community.
