Evolution Arts Mural Concept
Our brief was to design a music inspired mural, which would be painted in the music practice rooms to inspire people to play music.
Throughout this project we have researched a number of murals that inspired us to create the final piece.
We got to know a lot of things about murals e.g. how they are made, what they show , the different types of art used etc
Research of the Theme
To get ideas on what to include in our mural we done some research into the them ‘Music Brings us Together’ and this video shows what we think that means.
Our poem for the theme
To assist in the final mural we had to find out what the students and staff wanted in the mural.
To do this we designed questionnaires which were handed out to students and teachers of Cranford Community College.
Questionnaires for Staff-Quantative
Questionnaires for Staff-Qualitative At the moment Ms Cartright, Ms Pascoe & Mr Fraiser, think the music practice rooms are run down and need a revamp. They want a range of colours, Ms Cartright and Ms Pasco, want a calm colour scheme but Mr Fraiser would like a vibrant colour scheme as long as it wasn’t too ‘in your face’. They would also see a wide variety of instruments painted on the walls. Both classical and modern like, electric guitars, Saxophone, Drums etc. They also think that having people like Lady Gaga and modern day signers like that is not a good idea. The suggested staying away from painting people and mainly has patterns. They would also like to see a mixture of cultures. They think that have a mural in the room will improve pupils learning as they will feel more respectful of having a nice room and that the pupils will take more care of the rooms.
