Keep reading to discover more about wall graphics and some of the key benefits of installing them.
What are wall graphics?
Also referred to as vinyl or decals, wall graphics are simply images or designs that are applied to walls. They can cover whole walls and corridors or take the form of standalone quotes or images.
There are plenty of options too in terms of finish and material depending on budget and required longevity.
More and more schools are using wall graphics because of their impact when compared to blank and uninspiring spaces.
Why should your school install wall graphics?
There are many reasons why schools are using wall graphics and murals to bring spaces to life. Here are some of the driving factors behind having them commissioned.
Wall art and graphics are a fantastic way to inspire learning and complement the topics being taught. Whether it’s quotes from a famous author or striking imagery of a location or building, well-placed murals can inspire students and help them really dive into a subject.
When pictures and images say a thousand words, why keep a wall or corridor blank? Use the spaces at your disposal effectively and students can be learning before a lesson has even begun.
Schools and their classrooms can sometimes be a stressful and pressured environment. However, wall graphics can help play a part in bringing calm to a room and helping people focus.
Images of nature for instance have a relaxing quality, while a famous sportsperson could motivate pupils before a PE lesson.
You don’t want a classroom or subject zone to make people feel uninterested or uninspired. Let wall art play its part in creating an atmosphere that makes students want to learn.
Complement the curriculum
Yes school wall graphics and murals can simply look good but don’t forget that they can be a learning tool.
How useful could the periodic table be on a science corridor wall? How many dates could sink into students’ minds through a history timeline featuring key events?
These murals could really play a part in helping pupils remember key facts come exam season as it will be something they see week in, week out.
Reinforce school values
School wall art and murals don’t only have to focus on learning and subject matter. They can also be used to reinforce your school’s ethos, values and identity.
Key messages and branding can be used in your reception or shared spaces such as halls and meeting rooms, while emotive imagery can be utilised in main corridors and thoroughfares to show togetherness and unity. Think students learning or maybe your sports teams representing the school.
These will really come into their own on open evenings or when events are held at your school.
