Multicultural Mural

Download Activity Guide
Celebrate Harmony Week by creating a Multicultural Mural! Decorate the cube shapes to represent your family culture and bring them together to create a mural.
  • Step 1Place your thumb onto the paint pad and press down to coat your thumb with ink. In the top section of your cube towards the very top, firmly press your inked thumb onto the cardboard. Allow to dry.
  • Step 2Draw a portrait of yourself using your thumbprint as your head. Sketch in with lead pencil and then trace over with a black permanent marker. You can add colour using POSCA markers, coloured permanent markers or paint. Add your name to the top section of the cube as well.
  • Step 3Decorate the remaining cube sections using paint, POSCA markers or permanent markers. You could add your favourite activity, hobby or food. You may wish to theme your cube based on your own cultural background. You can research your family heritage and add any relevant country’s flags, or choose a country using a map or globe.
  • Step 4Use orange Spectrum Board as a backing and glue all of the decorated cubes down. The cubes fit nicely next to one another. You may need a couple of sheets of Spectrum Board depending on the number of people participating and the intended size of your finished mural.
  • Step 5Create a title or heading for your mural. We have chosen to use the theme of Harmony Week 2021, “Everyone Belongs”.
  • Step 6Your Multicultural Mural is now ready to display!
