Art and design tutor Hayley Young said: “I wanted to encourage my students to develop their visual observation and mark making skills so I decided to set them a task to draw the objects that they could see in their lockdown space.
“I hoped that this would encourage them to use this strange situation in a positive way and build on their skills.”
The results have been a series of images celebrating ordinary objects with pictures ranging from face masks, games consoles and flowers to butterflies, board games and gardens.
Hayley added: “It’s been a great way for the students to creatively document what they’ve been going through.”
