Program Fees

How our process works for our commissioned murals:

We meet with the client to figure out all the details and work up a cost estimate for them based namely on square footage and the level of detail in the art but also includes required wall prep work, location, timeframe, etc. The mural art design info is then given to our crew of artists once a budget is approved and a deposit is secured. All Brickmob artists that are interested will then work up concepts. If there are multiple concepts, the client gets to decide which you like and offer feedback on any suggestions for modification. The chosen artist(s) will then finalize the piece and the client receives a mockup that shows the art digitally on their wall. Our standard art development time is 2-4 weeks, depending on revisions. Our cost is all inclusive and covers all painting materials, artist fees, man hours, travel, etc. Typically we start the cost estimate at 10 per square foot and evolve the cost up or down as needed. The designing artists(s) get a portion of the commission total and all of our painters earn a minimum of $15 per hour. If the project is finished quicker then was originally estimated, the remaining proceeds are split equally between all the painters to increase their hourly wages. Brickmob also offers discounts for non-profits and social betterment programs.
