School & Community Center Murals
Schools are wonderful places where children, teachers, and staff spend hours of their day. Each school has its unique mascot and atmosphere for the building depending on the grade level. School settings quickly become a family where teachers & office staff become very close. Why not create a space in the school where you can show teachers appreciation with a mural in the teacher's lounge? Perhaps the school cafeteria is in need of a makeover and the few bulletin boards within just aren't cutting it. Community Centers have a similar atmosphere of bringing different people from all walks of life closer together. Murals withstand the test of time and allow for a positive, welcoming, & happy atmosphere for all who enter the school or community center to love.

Proud Vendor of PPG Industries
kimmie was hired by PPG Industries to help revamp the game room at The Boys & Girls Clubs Greater Houston. This was a paint-by-number mural where PPG volunteers would come in and paint the spaces as a community-building activity. kimmie designed and engineered the two wall panels so those with no painting skills or experience could successfully paint the wall. kimmie developed the design using game elements the kids at the club enjoy playing, created the outline on the wall, put numbers in each space that associated with the correct paint color, and then assisted while the volunteers painted the wall.
School & Community Center Mural Design Process
Send kimmie your inspiration and let her know the school hallway, teacher's lounge, or cafeteria wall square footage dimensions. She will draft out a design for your approval and send an estimated completion time. kimmie will never begin painting a school wall until you have full confidence and love the look of the design. kimmie will create as many versions as it takes until you are happy.
There are two ways kimmie creates murals. One is to take the design and create a full sketch on paper to then project onto the wall and trace the image for accuracy and detail precision. The other is to use a large scale grid method where the paper version will be measured out to match the square footage of the wall. She then will grid the wall and draw by hand what goes into each square. In either method, kimmie uses acrylic and paints by hand.
Using high-quality paint to withstand both time and even direct sunlight your mural will last for years to come. kimmie also varnishes the final mural for ultimate protection from dirt, dust, and hand prints. kimmie always protects non-painted wall surfaces with painters tape as well as uses drop clothes to protect flooring.
kimmie charges $26.45 by the square foot. This includes all materials needed, time to design the mural, drive time, and time to create the mural on site.
To secure the job, a down payment must be received and this will be deducted from your total square footage price. Clients typically pay in installments each time kimmie arrives to work, or you can pay in full prior to the final painting session. Each session is usually 4 hours of time unless otherwise discussed.
