On March 7th Positive Arts was invited down to the grand opening of the Zero Degrees skate park in the BigParksProject at Peace Haven.
the day was packed with skating events along with many other activities happening all over the park with a new children’s play ground, new community cafe, public stalls and educational workshops about the local Archaeology .
Our focus for the day was to paint the back of the half moon ramp and to involve as many young people in creating the graffiti mural.
In total we had over 25 young people taking part throughout the day, below are photos of us all in action with the sun setting on us at the end of a great day!
We kicked off the New Year with a trip up to the Midlands to work with arts organisation People Express again. We did a one day workshop with an ‘at risk’ group of boys from a local school and created two brilliant group work boards for display. They were very proud of their creations and showed an enthusiasm seldom seen in school lessons!

We have just finished a 6-Week Street Art Course with a group of residents @ GMC Living in Plaistow, London, which was funded by the East Thames Group. During the course the participants had the opportunity to work closely with our experienced artists, learning lots of new skills and gaining the help and assistance in creating some very personal pieces of artwork for display within their art room.
‘The course went brilliantly and the residents really got alot out of it”
We have just finished a mural with Community Space Challenge, Southwark on Brandon 3 Estate, Camberwell, London. The theme was to reflect the local wildlife, environment and the CSC vegetable growing project. All the community came out to help our artists create this amazing piece, which is much loved by the residents.
