Twelve25 and Aerosol Art The elected members who supported the establishment of the youth centre clearly gave Twelve25 the challenge to deliver programs with key outcomes for young people in the areas of engagement, education, employment and enterprise. The aerosol art FLO program is a prime example of Twelve25 delivering this service and providing young people with meaningful outcomes.
This program has more to it than just painting. Throughout the program the young people have developed their skills in the aerosol medium, learnt about basic occupational health and safety, worked as part of a team, developed an understanding of the reality for professional artists and engaged in a program emphasizing the promotion of legal pieces rather than illegal tagging. The City of Salisbury spends in excess of $300,000 a year removing illegal graffiti. With this course that promotes legal Aerosol Art, the students also have the opportunity to gain a SACE, Stage 1 Unit in Integrated Learning. A 2008 Aerosol Art program participant, Shane Cook has recently created the above piece to be displayed at the Lyell McEwin Hospital. The project came about by Peter Paye, the Director of Volunteer Business Services approaching community groups to brighten up the hall ways of the hospital. The art work is titled â€œHopeâ€? and portrays a guardian angel.

Banning Games? Banning Life! By Michael Skelton Source: http://healthmad.com/health/10-health-benefits-of-video-games/ In today’s society it is often portrayed that video games do nothing but ruin your health and Social life. However, these 4 facts about gaming will show you that this is not necessarily true. Video games can actually do you good. Fact 1- Improved vision. Video games can help your eyesight. A study undertaken at the University of Rochester discovered that gamers who played for a few hours each day for 1 month were able to identify letters in a visual acuity test by 20 percent than those who don’t. Fact 2- social skills. Dr Mark Griffiths from Nottingjam Trent University conducted a study lasting 15 years on the effects of video games on patients. He found that the video games improved the social skills of the patients who suffer from learning disabilities. Fact 3- Stress, Nerdular Nerdence Magazine did a study which showed the gaming is a contributing factor to lower your stress levels. I believe this is because games come in lots of different genre’s which can stimulate the mind to think about other stuff and momentarily forget what it is they are even stressed about. Fact 4- Losing Weight, a study involving children aged 10-13 that engaged in exercise gaming were burning at least the same amount of calories as moderate exercise or sports, I.e. Bowling. This study was conducted at the University of Oklahoma Health. This is good news because with Nintendo’s console, a lot of the games focus on being active I.e. Wii Sports, Wii Fit. In conclusion, I recommend you come down to the Twelve25 Lan on September 11 and check out some games and find a genre that’s right for you. It might even save your life.
ROTARY SUPPORTS TWELVE25
The Rotary Club of Salisbury has continued its fantastic support of Twelve25 Salisbury Youth Enterprise Centre.
Through the Rotary Clubs ongoing support there are now lockers available for young peoples use whilst here at the centre.
Manager Rick said “In the past we have had issues with not being able to help young people to keep their stuff safe, the lockers are now in place to help with this”.
The lockers are provided free – just speak to the reception staff and volunteers.
Twelve25 recognises the power of aerosol art as a recognised art medium but we only support and encourage legal aerosol art projects.
