A talented artist in residence
At the 16 to 19 Centre, everyone was amazed at the skill of talented pupil, Summer. Supported by her ‘model’ Amanda Eves, TA.
Teacher, James Williams was astounded and had this to say:
"As part of Summer’s A level art qualification, she has been working on mixed media portraits. She has also explored themes such as The Day of the Dead and Wood Spirits as well as the works of other artists such as Tim Burton and Clarissa Rose. She has developed some of her explorations into paintings and ceramic pieces. Summer has also enjoyed doing hair and makeup as part of her 16 -19 studies. This project has combined all of her talents and interests into one extended project."
"She has then applied theatrical makeup to our willing Amanda and set up a photoshoot where she has had the chance to experiment with photographic techniques such as lighting and camera angles. She will now begin to edit her photographs in Photoshop and will present a fantastic display of work utilising many skills."
How talented is she?
