Children have brightened up their Woodford Green estate with paintings including flyer saucers journeying through space.
Youngsters on the Orchard Estate in Broadmead Road were given lessons with professional artist Zaman Mohammed during their half-term holidays.
Their works are now being displayed on hoardings throughout the estate, surrounding ongoing engineering works to revamp its heating system.
An exhibition was held on Tuesday, attended by Roding councillors Felicity Banks, Ian Bond and Gwyneth Deakins.
Twenty-five young people took part in the week-long project with Mr Mohammed.
