A Level - work hot off the press

Leigh might be small but by 'eck she takes on big work and big ideas. She is also into dance. Can can you see what her final piece is all about? Let it rip Leigh!

In my coursework project I studied The Seven Deadly Sins. This is the final outcome for the Sin Wrath. I have made links to Joseph Wright of Derby because of his strong use of light and dark.

Go Garrett go. We are all so pleased because Garrett is relatively new to the department. Despite this he, along with Laura Hall, was the first to finish. Have you heard of the artist called 'Banksy?' Can you spot the connection?

Adam and Will in Year 13 - your influence goes on.
