It should be noted that the mural painting did not tend to simulate the arts of modernity and the postmodern art in a sufficient way, where the tendency of the majority of painting artists in their mural works is to utilize the experimentation in the relations of form and color away _ the functional applied potential advocated by the Bauhaus. In the context of the actual application of a new and different vision to the mural painting, this research outlined a vision of a major problem that is determined in the rare of innovative and depictive murals that resemble the pre-school child’s arts, abilities and thought. Moreover, the research documents the interactive relationship of the child with the mural work in general and in the context of the imagination of the child and the documentation of identity, especially as the child of the present era has been directed educationally and psychologically to the extent that is compatible with the contemporary culture in general and future visions and modern ideas both internal and external.

  • The application stems _ how to take advantage of movements and expressions of this child in the structure of the mural in terms of structural relations and coordination between the real spaces, symbols and colors in the formation and action plan.
  • The research depends on the form aspect by addressing the concepts of symbol and significance associated with the overall culture of the child, and also the expressive aspect in terms of the content and theme mural and the child interaction with it.
  • The research addresses a range of plastic formulations and applied treatments of some of the murals, which took into account the dimensions of the main problem of search using the effects unit confrontation, coexistence and intellectual inspiration and attraction and coordination between the Egyptian and the western symbol as mural’s dimensions to address.
  • The study found the following results:

ü  The possibility of designing spatial murals independent _ the construction that simulates the real art of the child.

ü  The possibility of linking between the real expressive movements of the child and the flat mural painting through formative spatial value.

ü  The possibility of integrating more than one formative processing at the bilateral and three-dimensional surface level (in the range of Monochromic color and values of aesthetic form).

  • Places of the application of independent murals (Kindergarten - School - Public parks - Children_s Library - Gardens of the child).
  • Application materials (structural steel - wood - rubber - foam - colors)
  • Research sample is applied to the age group of the pre-school child (4: 6 years).
