Collaboration Mural Project at OCAD U

 

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 - 4:00am

On Saturday March 19th, Jon Todd – Assistant Professor from OCADU’s Illustration Program, led a Collaboration Mural Project Workshop for OCADU students. 

20 OCADU students participated in the four hour workshop which featured a presentation from guest speaker, Jacquelyn West, Agency Director & Strategist, Hermann and Audrey, who provided the students with important information on submitting mural pitches, networking and executing successful mural/urban installations.

Students were then divided into groups and had 3 hours to produce a large scale unified art piece, with help and support from Jon Todd and guest artist Tessar Lo (mixed media artist, Toronto Ontario).  

The workshop encouraged confidence, self-expression and collaboration. It also provided students with experience working with a team on a large-scale piece. 

Paintings from the workshop are currently on display in the 6th floor Open Studio.
