Graffiti Workshop [March 2008]
Tuesday nights throughout March 2008 saw the return of the Graffiti workshops in partnership with Skinnycap. Demand was so high for the seven places that they were allocated on a first come first serve basis. The Community Safety Partnership met the cost of the art worker and material’s and once again ran the courses free of charge. The first two weeks saw each participant given their own sketch books and saw sketches’ and ideas being formulated with the aid of the art worker and various magazines.
It was decided that the area above the mini half pipe would be ideal for the project, so on week three the work commenced and painting began the transformation that took place in the space of two weeks spanning 4 hours was amazing all participants thoroughly enjoyed the project and all expressed a keen interest to enrol on the next project. All participants were given their sketch books to keep so as to practice their art work, with a view to formulating ideas that could be expanded upon and created during the next project. The feedback from both parent’s and participants was extremely positive with one of the participants parent’s claiming that “…. he is going to do his bedroom” and “ he’s been warned not to be doing this outside”.
