Young model created a mural with artist Etienne Zack

Two weekends ago The Model experienced a bit of a makeover. Outside at the front entrance there used to be a cracked white painted hoarding which was quite ugly and sad to look at, it was the first thing you saw when coming in the new Connaughton road entrance.

Over the Friday and Saturday young model youth programme at The Model which includes myself were working under the guidance and help of the artists Etienne Zack and Andy Parsons. It was a great experience and loads of fun. It was really cool to work with these two artists and it is amazing what a few people can achieve with just four colours of paint, some brushes and masking tape. It was a great two days working with interesting people and doing something fun. It was brilliant of The Model to organize this for us and to work along side Etienne and Andy.

Hopefully people will appreciate what we have done in adding a little splash of colour to an old hoarding, with a bit will you can make something nice out of something ugly. You can check out more images of our mural here
