Students' brush with art market
Art work
Students from Goldsmiths designed the pieces for charity
Artworks by the Damien Hirsts and the Tracey Emins of tomorrow went on sale at Greenwich Market in south-east London on Saturday.

All the money raised from prints and canvases, created by around 30 students from Goldsmiths College, will go to a charity for elderly people.

The project was the idea of 22-year-old Melissa Knight who hopes to raise 300.

Ms Knight, a politics student, said she wanted elderly people to know that young people do care.

She said: "I came up with the idea because the people at Goldsmiths are so creative and Greenwich is quite an artistic place.

"Elderly people really do suffer in the winter and I just wanted them to know that young people do care about the issue."
