A NEW piece of artwork has been unveiled in Bromsgrove's Sanders Park, thanks to members of the 'Graffiti Art Crew', who have been learning about the spray-paint genre over the past fortnight at Artrix.
The painting, in the new youth shelter near the basketball court, was done after sessions with Birmingham-based artist and tutor, David Baldaro of Your Murals Ltd.
The project was done as part of Artrix Outreach in Action, which is a North Worcestershire-wide scheme led by the Bromsgrove arts centre, in partnership with West Mercia Police Authority.
Artrix Outeach in Action is aimed at offering creative opportunities to young people who might not otherwise have considered participating in artistic pursuits. Other projects have included a Rock Choir in Rubery, Get In drama for youngsters with differing needs in Bromsgrove, Urban Beats Music and a Zombie Film project in Kidderminster.
TC Peppercorn, the co-ordinator of Artrix Outreach in Action, said: “We are delighted with the finished painting and so pleased the four youngsters from South Bromsgrove High School committed to working on this project.
"They were so dedicated, coming along two Saturdays running and until 10pm, to finish the painting in the park.
"This kind of project is vital in demonstrating that creativity and the arts can be relevant to everyone, especially young people.”
