SupaJam Students create unique artwork at local industrial park
Posted 11th September, 2018
On Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th SupaJam students had an amazing opportunity to take part in an art project in Sidcup at the Klinger Industrial Park.
This site was once a successful business in the area and made all types of gaskets for machines and cars, including Morris-Minor and Mini – Cooper.
The students had a 10-meter x 2-meter area to create some artwork that has a connection to the area and the site itself.
This art work will be erected and on show until 2019 above the existing hoardings.
