ARTY students are giving the outside of their school a colourful makeover.
The project at Burnt Mill Academy, in First Avenue, Harlow, will see the road side of the building transformed to reflect the creativity from within the school.
History will meet present day when students produce art work for the wall depicting education through the years at the school.
Local artist Julie Johnston is working with art and design students from Years 9 to 11 to gather old photographs and capture new images which will be placed on a vine on the side of the wall in a Gilbert & George style mural.
The words Burnt Mill will also be written on leaves across the wall in the many different languages spoken at the school.
Mrs Johnston said: “The outside of the building needs to represent the art, design and technology work which goes on within. The plan is to create something which depicts the inclusive nature of the school and include its co-operative values of democracy, equality, solidarity, openness, honesty and caring for others.
“I love this school and I wanted to create something here.”
