Summer of Street Art

Celebrate the world of street art this summer with a wide range of workshops suitable for all ages. Summer of Street Art brings you the skills and stories behind high-impact urban art, with some of Australia’s top street artists: PHIBS, Jenny McCracken, Shannon Keane, Brave Scribbler and some of the West’s best local talent. All programs are free but bookings are essential!

Almost all of our Street Art events are now booked out!  If you missed out, then join us to watch 3D Chalk Art in action:

Live 3D Chalk Drawing

  • Melton Town Centre Amphitheatre - 10 January 2019 - 9am-12pm
  • Caroline Springs Leisure Centre (footpath at front entrance) - 11 January 2019 - 9am-12pm

Award-winning street artist and 3D muralist Jenny McCracken will be creating two amazing three-dimensional chalk murals for you to interact with this summer!  Come and watch the artist at work as she weaves some illusionary magic to create a scene to bamboozle your eyes.  No bookings required.

The artwork will then be in place until the end of January (weather permitting) so you can come along at any time and jump in the scene yourself!  Take a photo of yourself with the artwork to see the illusion at its best.  Don't forget to tag us @imaginemelton so we can see and share all of your amazing photos!
