Have you ever wanted to paint a mural but didn’t know where to start? Join artist Anthony Tidwell, founder of Cutwell 4 Kids, as he walks young and emerging muralists through the process of making a successful mural.

Tidwell will lead participants through equipment, design and application in a free virtual workshop from 10 a.m. to noon on Monday, June 6.

Attendees will develop mural designs the Arkansas Arts Council will present to Downtown Little Rock Partnership, which has graciously donated a mural space for a community-build mural.

From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, Tidwell will lead participants through the hands-on process of building the mural. Join the Arkansas Arts Council and Downtown Little Rock at the intersection of Eighth and Main street sin Little Rock and help celebrate the arts in Arkansas.

This is a one-time opportunity to learn professional skills related to murals, a public art form that is a growing trend nationwide. Let’s come together to learn, create community unity and celebrate the arts.

After all, we are better together!
