Creative students capture exotic animals

Students came face to face with snakes, bugs and lizards as their classrooms were transformed into a tropical jungle for the day.

The art & design and photography students got their creative juices flowing when they were visited by Telford’s Exotic Zoo.

Around 85 budding artists and photographers were involved in drawing and capturing images of the creepy critters as part of projects based on a cabinet of curiosities and a children’s book of A-Z.

Lecturer Claire Henderson said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for the students to improve their observational skills and generate primary research by seeing how animals move and what they feel like.

“This first hand creative experience was a great preparation for their project work and forced them to step out of their comfort zone and study something new.”

The college is one of only two in the Midlands to offer the full range of courses accredited by the University of the Arts London Awarding Body. Places are still available on selected courses starting this month.
