South Burnett artist Olivia Everitt is co-ordinating a free youth public art project in Murgon during the school holidays and she’s issued an invitation to local youngsters to come along.
The three-day project has been supported by the South Burnett PCYC, South Burnett Regional Council and the Regional Arts Development Fund,
Youth of all ages have been invited to come along and learn aerosol painting techniques from local artist Kane Brunjes.
Artworks will be painted on the amenities blocks in Lamb Street which have been repeatedly targeted by graffiti and vandalism in the past.
“There’s no need to book, just pop along and stay for a little bit or as long as you like,” Olivia said.
“Kane is designing the artwork and facilitating the workshops and it should be a great few days!”
Kane has worked on other murals in the Murgon area, including inside the PCYC auditorium and on the wall of the Telstra substation.
The art project will run from 10:00am to 3:00pm on Monday (September 30) to Wednesday, (October 2) at the toilet blocks, next door to the Murgon Visitor Information Centre.
Free morning tea will be provided.
