Apprentices get colour confident with Crown at SGS Bell Decorating Academy

Crown Paints and Bell Decorating Group have given trainee painters and decorators at South Gloucester and Stroud College an insight into how colour and technique work together at the college’s recently opened Bell Decorating Academy, as part of a 10-workshop programme with Bell Decorating Group.

17 students at SGS College attended the morning workshop and in the afternoon, the young decorators had the chance to showcase their skills in a competition devised by Crown’s technical demonstrator Kevin O’Donnell – a judge in the prestigious Apprentice Decorator of the Year competition. A close contest saw Unique Bennett chosen as the winner, with Abdinasir Dualeh and Joshua Walker taking second and third place.
