The Skipton School Mural Project is the largest community mural project produced by ArtHouse Jersey with artists working together with school children and the wider Jersey community to develop 15 different murals at schools across the island. The project, sponsored by Skipton International, aims to inspire young people to engage with art and create murals with lasting impact for the Jersey community.
At ArtHouse Jersey we have supported the significant increase of street art across the island by commissioning murals on a range of properties throughout St. Helier as part of the Skipton Art Series. Now, this exciting new project will see street art expand across all areas of the island for the benefit of local children and the wider community.
As part of the project, some of the most talented artists in our community will go into schools across the island to run workshops where children will make art that will then inspire the design of the mural at their school.
The workshops will run from March through to June 2019 with over 20 workshops taking place and a total of 15 murals being created by the end of the summer term.
Following a strong round of applications, the following schools and artists have been partnered together for the project:
St Saviour’s School – Karen Allenet
Grainville – Matt Dufour
Le Rocquier – Mark Clure

ArtHouse Jersey aims for up to one thousand students to benefit directly from their participation in the project and that the work created will have a lasting impact on them, as well as on their peers, parents and the wider school community.
