MURALS

For Your Home: Bedrooms, Playrooms, Baby Nurseries



Joyce Raimondo works with you and your children to create a mural tailored to your vision. First choose a theme for your mural (topics listed on sidebar). The project begins as Raimondo works with your children to create whimsical collages to generate ideas for their mural. Raimondo then incorporates your family's ideas into a professionally designed mural. Additionally, families may choose to have children assist with aspects of painting the mural for their creative enjoyment.



Schools and Public Institutions


UNITY MURALS! Anti-Bully Project
The Imagine That mural team, directed by Joyce Raimondo, paints with students to create an uplifting character education mural tailored to your school. The mural illustrates your school slogan, character words, colors, and mascot. Input for the mural sketch from the principal, PTA, and teachers is welcomed. Workshops in which students generate images for the mural design are also available. The Imagine That! mural team folds into the art teacher's schedule of classes to paint the wall mural with every student in your school participating. Or, choose one or two grades to paint the mural. The program serves as an inspiring and unifying project that lasts for years to come.
