Linked Up Again

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

 

Last weekend marked another Wet Paint Aerosol Workshop for the kids of Brighton and Hove’s parent-run group the Link-Up Project. As we have posted before, this amazing group offers support and social activities for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Once again the incredible Snub 23 put them through their paces – teaching them can control and compostition – all overseen by our very own Projects & Community Manager Charlie Allsebrook. Despite most of the kids being new to spraypaint their efforts really impressed us and they all left with a finished canvas as a memento of the day. Above all the other projects Wet Paint get involved with this is probably one of the most rewarding, especially as the kids enjoy it so much.  But don’t take our word for it. This is what Julie Sissions of the Link-Up Project had to say: “The children all loved the workshop. It was good that the session was inclusive of all age groups and it was fantastic to see an 8 year-old as engrossed as a 17 year-old working alongside together. The artist was informative and worked well with the young people, sharing his skills and passing on confidence to those who normally find art at school difficult. We will be booking [Wet Paint Productions] again for sure.” To find out more or to book workshops contact us at: wetpaintproductions@hotmail.com   

 

We’ve Seen the Future…

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Due to a manic schedule (and maybe a bit of well earned laziness!) we have had what can only be described as a communications black out over the last few weeks. Well, back from travels sorting arrangements for forthcoming events which we’ll announce very soon, we thought we’d update you with a couple of posts on recent events.

Last month saw Wet Paint Productions’ Aerosol Art workshops kick off at the Open Market, Brighton, and we had a full house every time. From seven year-olds to a thirty something stag party, we found ourselves teaching the uninitiated how to spray paint and with great success. Our young apprentices especially threw themselves into the action and couldn’t wait to get their hands dirty as these pictures prove. Under the guidance of Foundry and Snub 23 we think we have helped to produce some budding little graffiti artists. We have to also thank Funky Red Dog and Limbo for their direction too.

Having already received a lot of requests for more we will update you soon with future dates.

Start Them Young – Graffiti Workshops for Kids

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Just call us the saviors of parents. With the summer school holidays in full swing, Wet Paint Productions have introduced graffiti taster workshops for kids from 7 upwards. Instead of sat in front of a TV wearing their thumbs to the bone on games consoles (or whatever it is kids do these days), we are now giving them the chance to experience aerosol art and graffiti techniques under the guidance of respected and talented, local artists. Based at the Open Market in the centre of Brighton, groups of no more than five per session will receive a great introduction to street art in a safe and urban environment. All paint and protective equipment is supplied.

As places and sessions are limited we advise that you book quickly. For more information an bookings contact us at: wetpaintproductions@hotmail.com

So, whether you are a student, street art enthusiast, or have a child who would benefit from a positive way to learn basic creative graffiti skills, we look forward to hearing from you.
