Students from a Norwich college have created a massive graffiti mural to brighten up the college grounds.
Visitors to City College Norwich this week were able to watch and take part in the 'graffiti jam' with different graffiti artists as students produced a giant piece of street art for the college's two-day April Open event.
More than 80 square metres of previously plain hoardings on the college's Broadland Drive were covered by students on the College's BTEC Art, Design and Media course.
The group worked with Tony Allen of StickyFingerz and his team of graffiti writers from across the country on the two-day project.

Mr Allen has previously worked on many graffiti-based projects with young people, including organising graffiti jams around Norwich's Anglia Square shopping centre.
Kim Voisey, a lecturer at City College Norwich said: 'Students study many different artists and techniques on their course but creating a piece of graffiti art this size is something we have never done before.

'It was a great chance for the group to work on a team project and it's a modern art form that they really engage with. The students on this course have all had their previous education disrupted in some way, but they are a really committed group with lots of artistic talent. It was a fantastic experience for them to share their work with the Open Day visitors in this way.'
Visitors to the Open Event also enjoyed other activities including a climbing wall, mini manicures and hair makeovers, and live music provided by students from the School of Creative Arts at the college.
