As part of Young People's Academy's rewards scheme, students who had reached the top tier of the pyramid by earning points throughout the week were able to take part in a graffiti workshop with a local artist, Sam.
Sam taught a technique using spray paints called ‘Speed Painting’ which allows you to create a piece of amazing artwork really quickly! One Year 11 student, Peter, was so pleased with his artwork (as seen in the picture) that he will be using it as part of his GCSE portfolio. Sam will be back this Thursday to create more great graffiti with those that have earned over 50 points!
