Mural Routes, an arts service organization supporting mural artists and communities through teaching, learning and sharing initiatives, is holding a workshop series encouraging community involvement with the upcoming Pan Am / Parapan Am Games.
Faces of the Community / Las Caras de la Comunidad, in partnership with Toronto 2015 Ignite and the Toronto Arts Council, will be held at St. Aidan’s Church, 70 Silver Birch Ave., on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, Feb. 7, 8, and 28, and March 1, 7, and 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. The workshops will teach portrait photography, large-scale stencil design, creation and printing.
Following the workshops, the designs will be printed onto outdoor spaces in the community. Local business and property owners who would like to have a mural installed on their walls are encouraged to contact Mural Routes.
