A media production and technology student from Bath College has had her work showcased at Origins, a creative arts festival run by awarding body UAL.
Saga El Banna’s work displayed was titled 21st Teens, a fashion magazine that presents the relationship between fashion and self-expression for 21st century teenagers.
The exhibition was at the esteemed Bargehouse in Oxo Tower Wharf, London between 3–5 August.
The festival showcased an exciting range of painting, drawing, sculpture, video and fashion, complemented by a programme of music and performing arts, all created and performed by pre-degree level students.
The Creative Media Production and Technology course at Bath College introduces students to the world of designing and publishing, leading to a UAL Level 2 Media Award. At the end of the course, students will have gained the skills to be able to progress their own publications.
Speaking about the exhibition, Saga said: “I never thought I would reach something like that and see my work in an exhibition and I never thought someone would call me an artist.
“College made me more confident thanks to the teachers and staff. I believe that I always can improve and be better at things with hard work and experience.
“The things that I want to do next is to improve and try new things that I am passionate about. All of this is thanks to my beautiful parents and teachers who helped me to believe in myself.”
