On Saturday, September 17th Wreck Shop Movement held its first Art in the Park by the Frederick Douglass Bandstand on Lynn Common.
Local artists Keith Gulla of Gorilla Militia, Salam MC, SWERLS and others shared tips and techniques with eager kids wanting to learn to paint murals.
Instructors also talked ethics with the kids, explaining that writing or painting on other people’s property is wrong. All completed artwork was backed with velcro and affixed in a way to not cause damage.
Organizer Justice Borne hopes to make it an annual event that grows bigger each year.
