MEMBERS of Barnstaple Youth Council and Barnstaple Senior Council got together to learn the art of spray painting at Yeo Valley Primary School.They created two murals, one based on the North Devon countryside and the other on butterflies.A member of the youth council proposed the two-generation project at a Barnstaple Alliance meeting following a discussion about what different age groups define as art. Yeo Valley head teacher Jan Reid volunteered a wall at the school for the project and Safer North Devon provided funding to hire Seize The Moment, which links professional artists with youth groups to run community arts projects. Cllr Faye Webber, chairman of the Barnstaple Alliance, said, "The aim of the event was to create more opportunities for people of all ages to work and play together and learn new skills. As the fantastic murals show, age is no barrier to having fun.
