Level 2 Art and Design students at Lewisham College explored local greenspace, Brookmill Park, where they analysed its natural features to produce a portfolio consisting of visual pieces including paintings, sculptures, drawings, zoetropes, masks and 3D artwork.

The project formed part of the final course unit, Developing and Producing a Personal Project in Art and Design, which gave students the chance to use nature to express themselves creatively, showcasing the range of artistic skills they have developed throughout the course.

Asfa Sohail, Principal at Lewisham College, said: “Our learners have taken the lead on this project and produced very high-quality work. Their progress throughout this year has been astounding and we can’t wait to see where their creative talents will take them as they prepare for their next steps.”

Using nuanced techniques, processes and materials, students were tasked with displaying the key themes in their work, including the history of the park, the natural world and the river.

Quaaliah Donovan used this stimulus to create a park with a modern treehouse that blends into the natural world and creates a haven for children with sensory and other disabilities.

Quaaliah Donovan, Art and Design Level 2 student, said: “In my final project at Lewisham College, I wanted to create something inclusive that inspires and encourages creative expression. I researched natural-looking architecture and how to create a calming, restorative space using evidence-based sensory techniques, leading to my piece which shows a park with a modern treehouse that incorporates disability friendly strategies into the space.”
