Youth Arts


Corban Estate Arts Centre holds two Graffiti Art Battles a year: Competitions where a group of young emergent graffiti artists, come together for a day, are given a theme, and each create a wall work that is judged on completion. Bobby Hung (Berst) has planned, organised and been one of the judges for each Graffiti Art event we have held.

Here's a video of the last event, on Sun 29 November 2015.


Challenge and extend yourself creatively through one of our action packed two-day classes. From street art to screenprinting, our youth classes offer young people the creative freedom to explore new techniques and methods.

The classes are available at low cost and some sponsored spaces are available. If you have a strong desire to do a workshop but you can’t afford to pay the fee, contact Andy on 838 4455 x 201 or andrea@ceac.org.nz to apply for a free place. Those who have previously benefited from attending a free place on a youth workshop will not be eligible.
