A group of Scottish pensioners have picked up spray cans for the first time to create a piece of street art.
The 16 senior citizen spent three days in the classroom learning about graffiti as part of the Nuart Aberdeen festival.
After designing their own tags, the pensioners sprayed a mural on a wall in the city centre.
It is the first time the Lata-65 Young At Art project, which teaches graffiti to older people, has taken place in the UK.
Maggie Wilcockson, 70, a retired registered nurse and midwife, signed up to the workshop to make new friends.
“There are so many different things that your tag can be,” she said.
“I’ve lived overseas a lot so I’ve represented that through the blue, purple and green colours of spray paint.”
Nuart Aberdeen is spearheaded by Aberdeen Inspired and the city council and will run until Sunday.
