Creative genius comes in many forms, and for Kelsey Graham it is creating realistic-looking injuries through make up.

The 15-year-old became interested in graphic body art after watching lots of movies.

“I thought it would be really cool to learn,” said Kelsey, “so I did some research and taught myself.”

Graphic body art comes in the form of scars, cuts, old wounds and even making fake blood.

Now Kelsey has been asked by West Darling Arts to host a workshop for fellow teenagers.

“Graphic Body Art for teenagers by teenagers” will be held on Wednesday, April 20 from 10am to noon.

The cost is $10 per person and it is open for ages 12 to 16 years. There are limited positions available.

“Sometimes it can take me half an hour to an hour to make the wounds from the putty as well as the blood,” Kelsey said. “I think it would be pretty cool to work on a movie set.

“It is great for dress ups and parties or just if you want to freak people out.”

There has also been some interest from adults, so there may be more workshops held later in the year.

The workshop will be held at the West Darling Arts in the Town Hall Facade.

Ring West Darling Arts on 8087 9035 to register - remember, it is a case of - first in, best injured.
