Bringing youth art to the table at Stuarts Point

In the beginning: Elaine and her tireless young helpers/artists had a clear vision.

PICNIC tables in Stuarts Point have been transformed through a project involving local youth artists.

The weekend of 22 and 23 June developed from bright sunshine to torrential rain punctuated by an icy chill factor, yet the young folk of Stuarts Point turned out in numbers at the ‘Bring Your Art to the Table’ event.

The art installation was facilitated by esteemed local artist and educator Elaine Carmady at the newly refurbished Stuarts Point Tennis Hub.

With the ongoing support of the Stuarts Point Community House, two dull and old green picnic tables (with an initial base coat in a shade of dark charcoal) have been transformed into practical community art installations.

“A big thank you to the little artists of our community for creating your own beautiful individual artworks, they are awesome, you all should be so proud.

“These tables look amazing, creating memories for many years to come; what a great turnout, and outcome!”

Local resident Heather Kind told News Of The Area, “Such thanks and respect to Elaine for coordinating this project and huge thanks and respect to all the young artists that contributed.

“Big thanks also to the parents and carers that braved the conditions so their little ones could participate.”

The management of the Tennis Hub are thrilled with the results.

“The old tables have a new lease on life, many thanks to our combined community efforts,” a spokesperson said.
