      I've often thought of doing this with my art club.  I thought about using the ceiling as a "grid" and doing a large painting of like the Mona Lisa or something less obvious using the grid, and each student does a "piece" of the painting.  You could have the original on a piece of paper with a grid on it and assign a box to each student.  If you do end up doing something on the ceiling make sure you post pictures!

      I t might be fun for them to each choose a great master of art and do an artwork in that style.
      Then make a patchwork of great art by kids.
      Someone could do a Picasso cubist work, another an impressionistic Monet work, someone do a Mondrian geometric, and etc.
      This isn't really a mural but maybe you will like the idea.

      I have done that in the past. Each kid was assigned an element or principle of art to create on one ceiling tile. Thumbnail sketches first. It ends up being a good tool to use when talking about the elements and principles to have them on the ceiling. Be sure to prime those tiles or they will suck up all the paint. I used basic wall primer. It covers the yellow stains on them too. Yuck.
