looms for Burnham-On-Sea graffiti competition
graffiti artists in Burnham-On-Sea have just a few days remaining
to enter their spray-painted designs into a competition being
run by the town's Youth Centre.
BAY Centre is holding the contest in order to decorate the exterior
of its building in Cassis Close.
Beckinsale, secretary of the BAY Centre's Local Action Team, explained
to Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We want to brighten up the outside
of the building and make it look more like a youth centre."
winning entries from this competition will be re-created on several
wooden boards. Young people will be able to literally make their
mark on the building."
added: "Graffiti is often given bad press, but that shouldn't
always be the case. There should be an understanding that graffiti
is not all bad and can be a positive art, providing that it is
discouraged in inappropriate places."
competition will involve the best three entries from School Years
7-9 and the best three from Years 10+ getting the chance to paint
their designs onto the display boards at the BAY Centre.
need to be drawn or painted on A4 or A3 sized portrait paper and
handed in at The Shed Reception at the BAY Centre with a name,
year group and telephone number clearly shown by the closing date
of May 30th.
