New Mural Helps Engage Youth at Rockingham PCYC

Youth from Rockingham PCYC have been busy painting up a storm with renowned urban artist Jerome Davenport during the school holidays and have transformed the massive centre car park wall into a masterpiece.

Five young people from Rockingham PCYC came together on Monday the 16th of April to start the project, and spent a week painting the mural, while learning spray painting skills and techniques.

Local WA artist Jerome Davenport is extremely well known in the urban art community and has been applying his trade both locally and around the world for a number of years.

Centre Manger, Justin Sambell commented that the mural has helped brighten up the centre.

“What an amazing improvement and what an amazing opportunity for 5 young kids to be involved in such an exciting project,” he said.

“We went with the marine theme to match both the local area and also the fantastic seal mural at the Bendigo Bank. Thanks once again to Jerome Davenport for your guidance and expertise.”
