A group of students from Ferrers Specialist Arts College have found a creative way to brighten up an outdoor wooden snack shop.

After witnessing the success of Royal and Derngate’s Air N’ Soul graffiti project which was held at the Higham Ferrers college a year ago, the school’s catering staff asked its art and design departments to transform the look of the Snack Shack.

Six talented students have been chosen to take part in a two-day workshop with Derby-based artist Thomas Wood.

A spokesman for the college said: “The students are learning about the world of ethical graffiti, development of personal tags, drawing, colour mixing and spray techniques.

“The workshops will culminate in the permanent transformation of the Snack Shack, from a wooden shed to an exciting and magnificent place to buy food.

“The Shack is extremely popular with students and staff at the college, with queues forming within moments of it opening at break and lunchtime.

“By brightening it up, the finished Shack will become a focal point within the school grounds and a testimony to the creativity of the students.

“The techniques learned during the project will help further develop the skills of our GCSE and A-level art and design students and help foster a respect and understanding of the laws and regulations surrounding the production of aerosol art.”
