North Hertfordshire College’s Supported Internship Employability students visited an urban art exhibition in Peterborough in May as part of their own urban art project. 

During the visit, our students were able to see a variety of different urban art pieces on display at the museum, helping inspire their individual ideas of what they could create for their own project. With their new ideas in mind of different themes to introduce to their own work, our students were then able to plan their designs. 

This trip formed the next step in the SI Urban Art project, following the students’ workshop with local urban artist Mr Meana, where they learnt a variety of spray-painting techniques. 

Thanks to a donation of paints from Brookers, our students have now completed their project and have painted the allotment shed, a potting table, and a coffee table for the chill-out room. The designs have certainly helped to brighten up the space through the use of colour! 

The project has been a big hit with the students, creating a fun experience for all. Yuwin Vorster, one of NHC’s Supported Internship students, said of the trip and the urban art project overall: “I have enjoyed the project and getting to do my designs.” 

Sukhi Haer, another of NHC’s Supported Internship students, said: “I really enjoyed the awesome art trip and doing my paintings after on the allotment.”
