ArtzAcademy is the number one specialist in facilitating mural and graffiti workshops within schools throughout the UK. We work with groups interactively to engage and inspire, creating a 'Big Arts' experience.

Murals and Graffiti art are excellent catalysts for engaging individuals in a 'Big Arts Experience'. Our workshops build skills both artistically, personally and professionally, developing awareness, raising aspirations and attainment and challenging negative beliefs.

ArtzAcademy works across all the key stages to create unique mural art on walls, canvas or board. Our aim is to take the pressure out of lesson planning as our workshops are based on the National Curriculum and we can fit our courses and workshops into your scheme of work timetable. Our service offering includes:

• Mini Mural Days

• Mega Mural Weeks

• Miracle Mural Exhibitions

• Summer Schemes

• INSET Training

Each Workshop is tailored to each individual project or school. These Workshops serve to support learning and a constructive attitude by encouraging pupils and individuals to consider concepts and subjects imaginatively.


Inspired by Banksy (or an artist of your choice), your pupils will work with street artist and english teacher Gabrielle, to create a large mural to display in school. This engaging and practical workshop will give pupils the opportunity to explore real life examples of street art and develop their understanding of how history has informed the content of many street artists’ work.

Pupils will use a range of specialist materials and techniques used in street art (eg non-toxic spray paint, stencils) in a safe and managed way. Through the session, Gabrielle will support the pupils to understand how images and art can convey strong meanings and messages through ‘visual literacy’. They will be encouraged to share their ideas, collaborate with, and support each other to create a large mural. This is a one day workshop, suitable for 30 pupils, from KS1 or KS2 as well as in Secondary classes and FE.

What will the school need to provide:

  • Teacher or a member of staff to be present at all times
  • Access to a sink to wash brushes
  • Suitable space to work from (usually the school hall)
  • acrylic paints, 500ml pots of various colours and size 10, 14 major brush’s, paper, Velcro tape, aprons, floor covering, large cartridge paper, pencils, rubbers, sharpeners for each pupil, mixing palettes, Artz will bring all specialist equipment.
