The history of PHAZE
In May 2007, a group of young people approached the City of Melville with a petition of 250 signatures asking for a legal place to create aerosol art.
The result was PHAZE or as it's sometimes called, Melville Legals.
PHAZE is a youth art project running out of the Melville, Leeming and Bull Creek skate parks and gives young people the freedom to paint their own designs
The project has given participants aged 12 to 24 years the chance to express themselves and develop their skills, as well as give them the opportunity to work with Urban Artist Dan Duggan.
PHAZE is perfect for anyone, beginners or old school it's a relaxing and fun place to get your art seen.
PHAZE runs nine urban art sessions a year, with three months off during winter.
The City of Melville provides all materials FREE of cost as well as sunscreen, water and lunch - all you need to do is register and have a rough idea of what you want to paint on the day.
Local residents, friends and families are also encouraged to come down and watch.
