Youth Arts Live!

Mural for ‘Youth Arts Live!’ festival, Poole.
16ft x 8ft

This mural, based on ideas and images from local young people, was painted during the inaugural ‘Youth Arts LIVE!’. You can see a video of the event here. The young people who helped paint really got into it and stayed till it got dark to make sure it was fully finished to their satisfaction!
It was warmly received by others, too:

“A fabulous piece of art, what an achievement. We would like to see it displayed in the actual Reception area and perhaps the Art Studio at the college on North Road?”

“Fantastic – uplifting. I would like to see this amazing piece of art mounted in CYPIS reception, not only for the benefit of the visitors, but for the wellbeing of the staff.”

This mural project was initiated and funded by the Arts Development Project, Borough of Poole.

The design incorporated images supplied by the project participants.

Blocking in the sketched-out design….

….and applying the finishing touches.
