Doncaster College students add a splash of colour to Old Hall

Anyone who has been to Old Hall at University Centre Doncaster recently will have noticed the walls have been transformed by a splash of colour.

The Hall, which includes four large corridors and several entrance foyers, has been transformed by painting and decorating students from Doncaster College.

The students involved had to take measurements as well as take into consideration health and safety due to working in a live environment.

The project involved various departments working together across the college, including estates, painting and decorating lecturer Neal Preskey and students, marketing and senior management and art lecturer Mike Bunn and students from arts courses.

Errol Michell, from marketing, said: “It would have been easy to select safe but obvious colours on the walls and a transitional approach would have been just that, so change and a visually strong change was the choice.”
