HDMF Teen Mural Project

The High Desert Mural Festival works actively with the local community to foster arts education in Bend.  The Teen Mural Project is an annual collaboration between HDMF, Base Camp Studio, and the Bend - La Pine School District.  It includes an eight week course held each Spring. Our goal is to facilitate the collaboration, development & execution of a large format art mural.  Since 2016 our student designed and guided projects have culminated with the murals being painted by the teens on the Cosmic Depot Art Wall in Bend. 

Applications for 2019 project available December 1st
