Graffiti Artist Mentors Local Youth

Graffiti Mural Project participants (submitted)

Local youth had the opportunity to learn more about graffiti, while participating in the Woodstock Art Gallery's Graffiti Mural Project.

WOODSTOCK - The Woodstock Art Gallery is looking back on another successful Graffiti Mural Project.

The youth mentorship program wrapped up last Thursday.

Teens between the ages of 12 and 17 had the opportunity to learn more about graffiti as an art form.

Head of Education Stephanie Porter says they also brought police in to teach them about vandalism.

"This year we had Woodstock Community Police Constable Nikki VanLeeuwen who came and spoke to the youth about vandalism and the laws surrounding that."

The teens were mentored by Chris Seaton; a professional artist from London. He enters graffiti competitions across the country.

Porter says they will probably bring the project back next summer.

"There has been some interest raised because of this project that has been happening for the past two weeks. There are other businesses interested in continuing the project so we do have community support."

The project was first introduced back in 2017.
