Trade School class: Operation Paste-UP

About the class

Make a street art poster. We will design a character or symbol, blow it up to a bigger size, draw it onto poster paper, give it colour with watered down acrylic, cut it out and then paste it up somewhere.

About the teacher, Guy Holness

I am The UP-Cycle Guy on a mission to build an empire of positivity, I’m using recycled materials to make positive products and then selling them to generate funding for The Inspirational Network, my organisation that uses art as a tool to inspire people to be more creative. I am the curator of Creative Connect exhibitions. I also wear funky Dudes on my shoes.
