Schools in the BS area have a unique opportunity to get creative and win a workshop with Inkie, the world famous Bristol street artist.

Paintbox was officially launched at the Taking Care of Your Caretaker forum on 23rd January 2014. Paintbox is a competition for pupils in years 5 and 6 at all schools with a BS postcode whether or not your caretaker is a member of the Caretaker Forum. The winning pupils will paint a container provided by Container Team, with Inkie to help them. Total prize worth in excess of £1,500.

Let your pupils' imaginations run riot and show Inkie what they would do if they had the chance to paint a container for their school. The winning design will be selected by Inkie who will run a workshop with the pupils to paint the design onto a container. The winning school will then get to keep the container for a whole year. The closing date for entries is the 11th April 2014.

Tim Edwards, Managing Director of Container Team said:

“We really enjoyed having Inkie in our depot painting the Paintbox container so I know the lucky winners of Paintbox will have great fun during their workshop with Inkie as well as providing their school with some really useful extra on-site storage. Good luck everyone – we’re looking forward to seeing some more amazing designs.”
