Art on Ella Road

Story: Jenny Tibbles

During a rare hot week in the summer holidays, Ellesmere Youth Project and Green City Action joined forces with young people of Ella Road and spray can artists Shaun and Casper to transform the new kick-about area.

Young people were invited to workshops and the design was discussed. It was agreed that it should have a ‘landscape’ theme, with some funky cartoon characters and lots of colour. Shaun and Casper then worked with the young people to develop a design and everyone had chance to show off their spray art skills by contributing to the finished wall.

There were many positive comments by passers by and all those involved thoroughly enjoyed themselves
