Students find their inner “Jenna Douglass”

Jenna Douglass creates mixed media pieces, through collage, painting, masking, and drawing. Her work is filled with a variety of lines and textures. Staff have been using her work to help students learn about composition, masking techniques, and layering.

Students from our Pathway 2, Pathway 3 and Supported Internship study programmes have been finding their own ideas and expressing their creativity through their work since the start of December 2021.

We are all very impressed with where they have taken their ideas and wanted to share some of their work so far with you. Watch this space as these are only the start… students are moving on to planning bigger pieces with titles like “City Scape” and “Cave”… Keep up the good work all!

Calm by Carly T (P3)

This was Carly’s first attempt at using mixed media. She has incorporated decoupage, soft pastels and textiles along with other 3D elements to produce this piece for a friend.

Carly continues to show the patience to develop larger pieces with many different media. She is currently working on “Caves”, which we will all be excited to see.

Great work Carly!!
