The Youth Art Intensive Workshop was held over the weekend at the Glenunga Hub. Eight students created great designs and painted them onto skateboards. The workshop was led by local artist Wendy Dixon-Whiley. This is the third year these workshops have been held. It is important for Council to provide activities for youth to create engagement outside of school activities. Wendy’s bold and simplistic style makes it easy to teach and it was her idea to use skateboards. Council’s 12 month trial of a portable pump track has shown the popularity of skate boards.
The boards will be displayed in the Cloister space for a month, starting on Tuesday 6 April.
