Educational murals for schools

Educational wall murals are an excellent way of decorating for schools. Wall art in a school can have educational, cultural, social, and psychological benefits; creating a more engaging and positive learning environment while fostering a sense of pride and community among students and staff.

Here are just some of the ways that a wall painting works for schools:

  • Promoting Creativity and Art Education: Murals provide an excellent opportunity for students to engage in artistic expression. By involving students in the creation process, schools can promote creativity and provide a hands-on learning experience.
  • Enhancing the Learning Environment: There is no better way to create visually stimulating space. Colorful and engaging murals can create a positive atmosphere that is conducive to learning and inspires both students and teachers. Our murals are used daily as teaching aids.
  • Inclusion and Diversity: Wall art can be used to represent the cultural diversity within the school community, helping to foster a sense of pride and inclusivity among students.
  • Community Engagement: Involving students, teachers and parents in creating a mural can be a community-building activity. It brings people together, encourages collaboration, and fosters a sense of belonging.
  • Conveying Messages or Themes: Murals can convey specific messages or themes that are important for the school community. This could include themes related to education, environmental conservation, social justice, or any other topic that the school wants to highlight.
  • Beautification and School Identity: There is no doubt that murals enhance the environment, making it more aesthetically pleasing for everyone.

  • Practical: Murals are very hard wearing and easy to maintain, both inside and out. They can be glazed to provide a surface resistant to scratches, marks and graffiti and can be touched up and added to if required.
  • Promotes sustainability: Wall murals are kinder to the environment that most printed materials such as stickers.

Primary schools

The vast majority of Charlotte Designs school murals are in primary schools. This is the perfect age to encourage children to engage with art and large scale wall painting have been shown to have a positive effect on the mental well being of children. Children of all ages can be involved in the design or painting of the mural.


Secondary schools

Art is becoming increasing squeezed as the school exam curriculum changes. Many secondary schools are finding that already stretched budgets are making it difficult to recruit the range and number of art teachers they would ideally like. Charlotte Designs works with schools to provide high quality art projects that may be difficult to do without external assistance.
