Alton Activity Centre

I was asked to come down to Roehampton as part of a charity event organised by Waitrose to paint the walls of the Alton Activity Centre to make it more fun for the kids. The job had to be done pretty quickly and it rained all of Sunday so it was a bit of a challenge. In the end, everyone was really happy with the finished result and it made the whole place more colourful for the kids.

The quote written on one of the boards (complete with spelling mistakes on purpose) was written by one little boy. The other paintings were inspired by drawings the kids had created.

'The Alton Activity Centre sits within the Alton Estate in Roehampton. Officially recognised as one of the poorest and most deprived estates in London. It caters for up to 200 children from six schools in the immediate and surrounding area aged between 5-16 years old from all ethnic backgrounds.'
