The Sea and Me was an outdoor art project for the whole community, that saw young people from across the Island co-create a public mural with professional artists.
Led by artist Richard Jeferies of Squarecube Artisans, young people took part in workshops at Sheppey Matters, where they learnt about outdoor arts, developed their art skills and created their own designs. Working with Richard, young artist Brooke Spokes brought the ideas together in a new original design.
Paintbrushes in hand, the artists and young people worked together to bring their mural to life on the seawall in Sheerness-On-Sea.
