Making a School Shine with A Colorful Lettering Mural Art

If you are an artist looking to start painting murals, there are different ways you can get hands on practice and build a portfolio at the same time. You can offer a friend’s or a family business with a blank wall your services or you can donate to a school or non-profit. Please, never give free services to businesses that can afford pay you.

I recently created a Mural for Alma Fuerte School. The school is located outside of Los Angeles in a town called Altadena, CA. They had a blank wall that needed some love and they wanted a powerful phrase to empower the kids and the family when they walked into the lobby.

I sketched the idea and presented the client the concept and the feedback was very positive. Once the sketch was approved I refined it and proceeded to prepare everything to paint on-site.

The concept sketch and approval took 3-4 days and the on-site painting took approximately 15 hours.


Here’s the time-lapse video. It took around 14 hours of work on-site and 5 days of creating concept/final lettering design.
