Nothing has quite the impact of a well thought out educational school mural. Using large scale images has been an educational tool for many years, as it marries fun and information in a compelling, visual way. Murals provide a way of celebrating the location, history or a special event or anniversary for your school, they also provide a lasting legacy for year 6 pupils leaving.
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.
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.

Schools often have endless corridors and outside spaces where murals can be painted to great effect, breaking up the monotiny and creating fun, interesting places to be. At Charlotte Designs, we turn blank walls into interactive, educational wall murals that students, staff and Ofsted love.
We often include the children in the design and/or painting of the murals and can paint directly onto wall or provide mural panels that can be moved around to different parts of the school.
