Over 20 people have attended this class


Have you ever wanted to create your own piece of street art? Our freehand workshop offers an exclusive chance to learn a variety of spraypainting techniques from a renowned street artist right here at the famous Blender Studios. The workshop will start with an artist talk from your instructor and street art demonstration where they will cover a range of different can skills to get you started on your spraypainting journey.

Spray paint is a challenging medium to work with and our artist is here to guide you through all the insider tricks of the trade. After a few practice activities where you will experiment with different techniques in our dedicated spraypainting venue, participants will then head back to the classroom for a short sketching and design session. Armed with your design, we will then head back outside to create our final masterpiece for the day.  You will paint onto a large wooden board which you have the option to take home if you can fit it in your car :)

What you will get

The panels are too big for most people to take home, so we suggest taking some photos to document your artwork. For anyone wishing to take their panel home this is also possible for a small extra fee to cover the material cost. We supply all materials including paint, caps, safety gear and sketching implements. Light refreshments are also provided.

14 July 2019Kids Holiday Workshop - Freehand Street Art
Kids had a great time(12,11). They enjoyed themselves, learnt a lot about street art and were keen to take their creations home. Piya was very helpful in getting them back to Perth. Thanks would recommend.
15 April 2019Kids Holiday Workshop - Freehand Street Art
Our fourteen year old son attended the Freehand Spray Painting holiday workshop and he had an amazing time! He loved learning a variety of techniques and the specific process involved when doing Street Art. When I went to pick him up he didn't want to leave because he was having so much fun! The facilitators worked closely to support him in producing his own Street Art Mural which now has a pride of place in his bedroom. The facilitators of this workshop were so friendly and helpful and made our son, feel so comfortable and he now definitely has a passion to continue creating Street Art as a hobby and to pursue Art as a career. Thank you for providing our son with the chance to express himself through his artwork! He will definitely attend another of Blender Studios workshop in the near future.
