Between March and September students at MEP on Mondays took part in art sessions learning about collage techniques.
Each week a different theme or idea was introduced which the students could either try to reproduce or use it as inspiration for their own ideas.
This experience was new to most students but they found the process of looking through magazines sourcing images and colours very accessible.
The images from magazines gave them confidence to experiment and as the weeks went on, they grew bolder and happier to express themselves.
It has been more meditative than anticipated and students have often commented on how relaxing it is focusing on their work.
