Getting all creative at Cottingley Springs

We had a great time last Wednesday in the Portakabin on Cottingley Springs; Some of the young residents created their own artwork brightening up the blank boring wall that were there before. There will be no falling asleep at meeting now for the residents!!

Nick from Olas Arts helped dream up the designs which included Micky Mouse on a motorbike, a Minion doing a cartwheel and Mike from Monsters Inc spray painting…

We painted the walls a light blue colour first and with a desert back ground Nick showed the young people how to spray safely.  We all wore gas masks and protective clothing and everyone had a really good go and got stuck in.  We hope you enjoy these photos of the process.
