The painting workshop aim is to create flags and banners that investigate the theme of peace. Over several days, the participants will be encouraged to compose with lines, forms, colours and symbols a large painting on a thin canvas expressing a personal statement for peace. At the end of the workshop the realized flags and banners will be carried in a parade on the streets.
This seminar has especially been created for situations where the social tensions and/or politics weigh heavily on young people. The objective is to use the artistic language to learn to express concepts, ideas and to manifest it in an artistic form as playful parade.

Iitinerary and realization of a mural painting (on outside or inside wall).
Mural painting is an artistic form that offers a great prospect to communicate with the environment and architecture as an organism. The story of mural painting goes back to the origins of humans and tells us about early beliefs and daily life.
This artistic expression has immediate impact with spatial problems and contextual problems inside and outside both private and public buildings.
