Taking the first steps can be daunting and you might be worried about making mistakes or having your fabulous work not last on the wall.
Does the wall just looks so big, blank and overwhelming that you struggle to even consider starting?
I painted my first mural seven years ago and had so much trouble finding all the information I needed to do it. I was worried about the paint coming off the wall, working on a large scale, using the wrong materials and having my mural ruined by tagging and UV fading.
Since that first mural I’ve painted big and small murals professionally in Australia and overseas. I’ve done loads of experimentation and made my share of mistakes, so I know what works.
I run a popular YouTube Channel Fieldey TV: Art and Tutorials and get so many questions on painting murals, I knew it was time to create The Ultimate Mural Painting Course.

What language is the course in?
The course is in English, so proficiency in English is recommended.
Is the course live?
No - it has been pre-recorded so that you can access and watch the videos as many times as you wish. It's based on a learn at your own pace model, so you can take as long as you need to complete the steps.
There's lots of free content out there, why should I pay for this course?
There is definitely a huge amount of free content to be had out there, in fact I have an entire YouTube channel of free content. The problem with free content is that it's confusing, incomplete and sometimes dead wrong. You have to wade through oceans of dubious videos and guides just to find a sliver of what you're looking for. This course is based on everything I've learned and mistakes I've made in seven years of professional mural painting. It's designed to be clear, concise and fun - giving you EVERYTHING you need - saving you time and ensuring your best chance of success.
Is this good for beginners?
Total beginners will be able to follow the process for painting wall murals. Once you decide on what materials and style (e.g. Spray paint or stencil art) you would like to use for your mural, I recommend you do some further self-study on your chosen painting techniques, and do some practice before tackling your wall.
I'm already an artist, but want to transition to painting murals - is this course only for beginners?
Not at all! You'll find that this course is an excellent jumping-off point for transitioning the painting or art skills you have to a much larger canvas.
Are you going to teach me how to actually paint in this course?
Murals can be painted with so many different types of paints and materials that I couldn't possibly demonstrate and teach everyone of them in one course. What I've done instead, is discuss different materials and painting styles that you could explore for your own mural. In Module 8, I take you through my professional painting process on a real-life mural, showing you how I use layers of my preferred medium, house paint, to create realistic murals. You're going to learn plenty of tips and techniques for using different mediums and what surfaces and applications they are good for.
I'm going to use spray paint for my mural, is this course a waste of time for me?
Not at all! Even though I don't use spray paint in my final mural, this course will give you an overview of the entire mural process. In Module 8, where I paint my mural, I show the process of actually constructing a mural - this will be similar whether you use spray paint or house paint. I also show do's and don'ts for using spray paints.
Can I ask questions or post pictures of my mural?
You sure can! I'd love to see what you create. When you purchase the course you'll also be able to gain access to my private Facebook group where you can chat with other people taking the course. I'll be popping in on Fridays to answer any questions that you post.
Can I watch a free sample module?
Yes you can! Sign up to our email newsletter on the Contact Us page and I'll send you the link to the full Module 7 - Scaling your concept onto the wall.
“Fieldey, I always follow your tutorials from the skateboards to the murals and I really appreciate how you teach them. Very informative and detailed but not that complicated.”
“I've just started art school and recently stepped into your channel, wtf!? Your artworks inspired me so much that makes my heart tremor!!! I want to paint so many thingssss!!! Thanks so much for sharing (your) work and tips! Alfre XOXO ”
“I was looking into art classes for a while but they are really expensive, slow, time consuming and a massive gamble considering I only really learn in a one-on-one or self-study setting. You've enabled me to grow as an artist many times over, put those funds towards supplies and allowed to utilize that time better. I wanted to tell you thank you very much... not to be corny, but I guess it's like not being proficient in a language but having these really important things to say, your vids have allowed me to express those messages in the language other people can understand. ”
“I love so much about this video - from your insight into how fleeting public art can be and how to deal with that to figuring out, what went wrong... and how you fixed it. I also really liked the pacing and narration of this video. You make a great teacher and keep me so invested. Thanks for letting us learn from you!”
I’ve had a ball creating this Ultimate Mural Painting Course. It brings together everything I know to share with you.
Let’s have some fun and create something amazing together. See you at the wall!
