They have created assemblages using natural materials, designed mandalas and made stickers and zines. They have looked at the work of Bansky and created their own stencil art.
Students developed their awareness of how designers communicate ideas to specific audiences and purposes, through different visual presentations, practice and viewpoints. They built up skills in two and three dimensional drawing as well as methods such as computer and three dimensional processes.
