Children got to experience a masterclass in the art of graffiti.
The two-day session outside The Forum, in Norwich, was led by Great Yarmouth-based Reprezent Project.
The soon-to-be community interest company was set up two years ago and encourages creativity in children and teenagers in the Yarmouth area.
It goes into schools and community groups, and as well as teaching graffiti as an art form it allows the youngsters to learn media and music production skills from experts.
Graphic designer Adriano Leme, one of the project directors, said: 'If we can bring in young people and channel them into the arts, the effects are transformational. We teach the difference between graffiti art and vandalism. The project has made a big difference.'
