To mark the completion of the urban art project the Shire of Dardanup invited the students involved and their parents along to view the completed work on the Eaton Recreation Centre.
The Centre has been adorned with an epic mural, displaying the passion of the artists, students and the efforts of the Dardanup Shire.
After being awarded a series of grants, coordinator of culture and community services Sue Parora said she began discussion with Andrew Frazer about the possibility of future community projects.
“We devised a series of workshop projects incorporating a group of talented Eaton Community College students to paint murals on the underpass along Millbridge Boulevard and the Watson Street Reserve,” she said.
“The project also had a strong drive to involve the youth in our community, and doing this has really given them something to be proud of.”
Mr Frazer said it had been a real honour to be working with the shire and the students to create the artwork.
“The last few weeks have been unreal, it’s been great to see the students expression on display, working together to come up with something to carry throughout their life,” he said.
“I’d have loved the opportunity to so something like this when I was in school.”
Mr Frazer said he hoped the artwork conveyed the diversity of the community and of those who created it.
“I think essentially everyone is an artist in some capacity,” he said.
“Art is a method of communication and as a by product I think it brings people together, it has a real public connection.”
Fellow artist on the project Kyle Hughes said at its core art is a very human activity.
“Humans are creative creatures so I think it’s apart of us.”
