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.

Thank you to the following guest speakers and students for their participation in the project.
