ABOUT THE PROGRAM
All of our youth workshops are run by artists experienced in working with youth. All our staff have WWC's and work with school aged students multiple times a week. We will provide all materials for the classes and the young people will get to take their artworks home! We will provide a light snack in each workshop, please inform us of any dietary requirements.
We kindly ask that parents do not attend the program due to limitations on group size. There will be a lunch break on both days, if you do not wish for your child to have their lunch unsupervised then they are welcome to bring along a packed lunch and stay inside the studio where we can offer supervision. We will speak to you at sign in on Day one.
Explore Melbourne's famous laneways with a street artist who will tell you all the exciting stories behind the artworks.
The tour will start at Federation Square and finish at the Blender Studios.
Our tours are led by an established street artist who is passionate about the street art world. Street art is an ephemeral art form, and who would know about this better than a practising street artist?
STENCIL WORKSHOP (2hrs)
This workshop offers an introduction to spray-painting through stencils. Every young person will design and create their own stencil that they will cut from acetate. Using a combination of basic freehand skills and stencilling techniques, each young person will then spray-paint a canvas that they will get to keep.
SCULPTURE WORKSHOP (2hrs)
In this fun and hands-on workshop, participants will get to create their own characters and sculptures using recycled and upcycled materials. The class is led by the street artist ‘Junky Projects’ who is famous for his street installations which can be seen all around Melbourne.
Daniel (aka Junky Projects) has over six years experience working with young people and delivering his unique workshops and tours. This workshop is popular with young people as they get to use tools and glues (under our careful supervision) to create weird and wacky upcycled sculptures.
FREEHAND JAM (2.5hrs)
Our Freehand Jam offers an exclusive chance to learn a variety of spraypainting techniques from a renowned street artist right here at the famous Blender Studios. The session includes an artist demonstration and practice activities before painting your final street art piece on to a wooden panel which you are welcome to take home.
All classes will be held at the famous Blender Studios located at 33-35 Dudley Street, West Melbourne.
