It’s not often that young people are encouraged into graffiti – but that’s exactly what has been happening at Witchford Village College.

Students were asked to get creative with tins of spray-paint as part of the college’s Kick-Ash programme, which aims to promote a no-smoking message to young people in the county.

The day was run by Kick-Ash staff and ImageSkool, which specialises in graffiti workshops.

The students took part in sketching, stencilling and spray-painting workshops before putting their best ideas down on canvas to take back to their college.

A spokesman said: “The artwork produced gave a powerful no smoking message and Kick-Ash staff and James were impressed by their creativity and with the professional way they conducted themselves whilst attending this project.

“Kick-Ash’s plan is to display the canvases centrally for No Smoking Day on March 8 as together all the images created will hopefully encourage people to think about giving up smoking and become healthier for 2017.”
