Yo Bendigo invited Reece Hendy from Nacho Station to hold a graffiti skills workshop at the Bendigo Skatepark legal graffiti wall as part of their 2017 COG arts program. 

The participants were all excellent young artists from Bendigo and Central Victoria with unique styles, none of them had previous experience using aerosol. 

The session started with the basics on how to hold and use an aerosol can correctly, it quickly moved on with participants practicing some basic line work and spray techniques until they got the hang of it.

Once comfortable the artists started painting their sketches onto the practice boards we had provided.

After the lunch break we encouraged the artists to start spray painting their graffiti pieces onto the Bendigo Skatepark which is currently Bendigo's only legal graffiti wall.
