Invitation to Design a Wall Mural for SJSM Nursing Home

Do you have an artistic flair and enjoy leaning on God’s inspiration for your designs?


SJSM Nursing Home needs you to come up with original mural designs that will grace the walls of our nursing home!


The chosen designs will be soothing, cheery, and easy on the eyes. They will also uplift the spirits of our residents, visitors, and volunteers. Here are the details:


Design Theme


All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful,

The Lord God made them all.

   - Cecil Frances Alexander



As the artwork will be painted onto the walls by volunteers, do consider the following factors:

•  ease of implementation

•  clarity of forms and shapes

•  contrasting colours and varying tones



Combine colors that are easy on the eyes. Create contrast in the palette as this would be elder-friendly.

Have clarity of forms and colors, with color contrast coupled with distinction of tones


Scripture Verses


A scripture verse will be incorporated in the mural. The letterings may be printed in any colour that contrasts with the graphics.  The verses are as follow:
