My name is Nadia Rahman and I’m from the Burngreave After School Study Support Project. On Saturdays’ me and my friends go to a spray can art project. It is a recognised award and lasts for ten weeks. The course is fun and different every week. It makes me feel very responsible and creative.
Usually spray can art is a hooligan thing but really it is a really good thing to do. You’ll never know unless you try it.
This is a very big opportunity for me and I will prove if I am resourceful enough to complete the project with flying colours and leave with a spray can art stencil of my name in any colour. Furthermore the teacher helps us to design our own tags. We also get homework to research more about spray can art.
The teacher brings in DVDs so that we can see other people that have already done what we are now doing and have succeeded. So it builds up my confidence.
I think that we should do more of these types of activities because they make learning exciting and it gives us something to do on the weekend instead of staying at home doing nothing.
My name is Huda Yousif, I go to Fir Vale Secondary School and Burngreave After School Study Support Project. Every Saturday I attend the OCN-spray can art project. There we learn many skills e.g. how to use a spray can, art and design. We also learn about different colours.
Spray can art is a well known thing in the U.K. I enjoy attending because it is a lot of fun and I get to see my friends and I also like attending because we get an accredited award out of this. We are also going to go and see a play about break dancing this weekend to help us with our work.
Spray Can Art tutor Shaun Tummings, explained what the OCN course involves.
“I teach health and safety, the legalities, the history of spray can art, as well as the practicalities. Spray can art is a great outlet, there’s nothing you can’t do, but it takes dedication and commitment. ”
