Students show off design talents.

TALENTED Redcar and Cleveland College students with designs on artistic careers have been exhibiting their work to the public.

The students, all on a BTEC Level 3 extended diploma in art and design course, proudly showed examples of their work, including painting, sculpture, photography, 3D design and fashion.

One of the students, Emily Keeling, 18, from Marske, is at the end of her course.

It's hoped she'll get a distinction, but she has already secured a place on a textile and surface design degree at Cleveland College of Art and Design.

She said: "The art and design exhibition has been a wonderful way for us students to showcase our best work and we've had some really positive, encouraging feedback from the public, which is great.

"Redcar and Cleveland College has been a wonderful experience and in a way I am sad to be leaving, but I'm really excited about the future."

As part of her degree, Emily - whose goals is a career in design - will be working with leading fabric designer Liberty's of London and Hallmark Cards.

Spurred on by their studies, Faii Harrison, 18, of Brotton and Michael Harland, 18, of Redcar, hope to run their own business, dyeing and studding items including T-shirts and denim shorts and marketing them on the internet.

Faii said: "A show like this has been a great way to launch our business and Michael and I are really looking forward to working together.

"We've both got one eye on the future and are looking to gain more experience before doing fashion, design and marketing at university or college."

College art and design tutor and course leader Meg Ashley helped the 40 students display their work.

She said: "Many of our students are entering the home straight of their two year course here and are deciding what to do next.

"Showcasing their work is wonderful way to sign off from the college."
