Masking Tape Murals



The new Art One class spent the day creating masking tape murals around the school. Take a look at the process we went through to get to this point.



First, we talked about hatching and cross hatching. We tried out some hatching techniques in out sketchbooks.



Next we talked and made a list of different topics that were important to us.



We formed teams based on topics we selected and talked about symbols and words that would relate to our topic.. Each team created sketches based on those ideas.



We even practiced with the tape on the table to get used to working with this medium. Then we went to work... Here are the results.

  2. My favorite part of this is that you KNOW the kids LOVED doing this... like doing graffiti that is allowed. I know I would have loved this when I was in high school.

  4. Do you recommend a specific type of tape? My custodial staff is concerned about residue... How long do you leave them up? Thanks!

    1. We used masking tape which didn't leave any marks on the lockers or brick.

    2. We've always use masking tape here at Apex. It doesn't leave anything behind.
