“Mural Making with Precita Eyes” by the Precita Youth Mural Crew

Let’s make a mural! Oakland teens: Come learn the collaborative mural process used by the acclaimed Precita Eyes Muralists. During the two-week workshop (Feb 28 and Mar 7) we will develop a theme for our mural, sketch out ideas, compile our sketches, outline the images with charcoal, then paint! Over the course of 2 sessions, students will learn about the community building aspect of painting murals and get hands-on experience creating a lasting work of art for Oakland Public Library. We encourage youth to come to both sessions to see their finished product.

Mural Making is part of a series of urban art workshops co-hosted by Oakland Public Library and the Estria Foundation. For a full list of workshops click here.

Workshops accompany a year-long Youth Mural Arts Exhibit on display at four Oakland Public Library locations, November 2013-2014. For exhibit locations and details click here.
