Focusing on college and career readiness, SEL standards, and revamping school campuses.
The next generation of artists needs more than just talent to build their careers.
They need to start familiarizing themselves with the creative economy and what it means to be an entrepreneur.
At Influential Walls, our mission is to eliminate the starving artist mentality through art business education and delivery of bold artwork.
We started our Mural Academy Program to teach students they CAN become a professional artist who doesn't fit into the "starving artist" stereotype. It was formed to show students they are not alone in the arts and that art is used to better the community, solve problems, and exists all around us: whether on our clothes, cars, walls, websites, and more.
The Mural Academy Program takes into account SEL standards set forth by the Department of Education, college and career readiness, and creating a sense of ownership in the student body.
Not only do we take into account student and faculty ideas, but we allow students to participate in creating a mural alongside a top-tier muralist who is vetted and fingerprinted. We work with some of the best muralists in the world who have worked with huge corporations, government authorities, and schools alike. Our work speaks for itself and our clients absolutely love the final product!
