Nelson youth centre hosts skate deck art show

On Friday, the students of Claire Hewson’s Art 9/10 class will be having a skate deck art show at the Nelson and District Youth Centre.

Local students have been transforming old skateboard decks into art.

On Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., the students of Claire Hewson’s Art 9/10 class will be having a skate deck art show at the Nelson and District Youth Centre. The art show is an open house where there will be some food and drinks provided. Everyone is welcome.

The art show coincides with a skateboard competition that takes place Friday night. The L.V. Rogers art students have been working hard sanding, priming and painting their pieces in order to prepare for the art show.

Some students will add wheels and trucks and use the skateboard when the show is over, whereas others will hang their skate deck on a wall as an art piece. The transformation from old beat up skate decks to beautiful art pieces has been incredible.

All the old skateboards were donations from teachers, students, Tribute, Ripping Giraffe and the youth centre.

“It has been great that the community comes together in order to support this project,” Hewson said. “Everyone has been willing to help out to make the art show come together.”

The art pieces will hang at the youth centre for a few weeks.
