A private Calgary school tired of vandalism has teamed up with a professional graffiti artist.
Delta West Academy was hit by taggers three times this summer, but instead of fighting to keep the walls clean they've turned to a professional graffiti artist for help.
Sarah Drake, an art teacher at the school, said the students are working with David Brunning, who is also known as The Kid Belo.
"This summer we were hit pretty bad with some graffiti. It sort of got us thinking; we have this big white canvas over here, why not have him do a mural here?"
Brunning is teaching high school students his techniques and letting them incorporate their own ideas into a finished piece of art.
"A lot of what I’ve learned has just come through years of practice," he said.
Delta West Academy is a private school in northeast Calgary.
