Oak Park village trustees approved a $12,000 budget request Tuesday for the Village of Oak Park Area Arts Council's Off the Wall program.
The group will use the funds for the installation of a mural this summer at the School of Rock, a business that offers music lessons for kids, at 219 Lake Street.
The Off the Wall program offers work to teens 16 to 19, painting murals in Oak Park.
"They also work with a professional master artist to design, create and install mosaic/bricolage murals throughout the village," according to a letter from the Oak Park Area Arts Council requesting the funds from the village.
"We are planning to take on two projects for this summer. The School of Rock request brings the number to three projects, and that is doable with excellent planning and enough funding."
The Off the Wall program has been in place since 2005.
