RENOWNED graffiti artist Andy Council worked with children at The Dolphin School in Montpelier to create an artwork for their new building. 

He spent two days working with children in different year groups to develop designs for the mural.

Headteacher Shelley Dixon explained that staff, children and families wanted to reflect some of the culture around the school and Stokes Croft is known for its graffiti. The children chose a dolphin shape to represent the school and asked for familiar buildings and the school colours of blue. Andy collated their designs and painted the mural in the summer holidays. 

Miss Dixon said: “The children loved having Andy come in and work alongside them to create this graffiti mural. It was inspiring for them to see their designs as a finished piece. The children have loved being able to touch the mural and work out where the school and other buildings are near to them.”
