You can create murals from templates to start from a structured activity instead of a blank mural. When you create a mural from a template, it defaults to an infinite canvas, so you’ll have plenty of room to work.

There are three ways to create murals from templates:

  • Clicking a template tile from your dashboard.

  • The + New mural button on the Mural dashboard.

  • Using the Create mural from template button inside a template preview.

All three options open the same New mural from template modal, so pick the approach that works best for you.
