Talented artists from Thomas Clarkson Academy show-off their creations





The seven deadly sins in animal form joins a character from the Batman series in an art class packed with talented students of a Wisbech academy.

The A Level artists at the Thomas Clarkson Academy are working on pieces which will go towards their exam grades later this year, and their work is amazing.

With a peacock skull depicting pride and intricate work detailing the eye of a cat, their projects are all based on a theme they have settled on for the exam.

Monika, 18, has chosen to animate the seven deadly sins in a monotone work using animal skulls to illustrate which sin they represent.

Although she aims to study business management, she said art will always be part of her life as she has been using the medium for more than ten years.

Teacher Tahlia Armstrong said she was proud of the work produced by the A level classes and how much they were all putting into their projects.

“They each choose a theme to work with, and put so much into the art they create. Their focus and dedication can be seen in what they have produced,” she said.

Student Angel has opted for adult themes in animation and has produced a portrait of The Joker from the Batman franchise.

“I am inspired by artists and pieces including Arkado. But the Joker portrayed by Jo Quinn is my favourite, and I have painted him before,” she said.

Emmie is fascinated by the usually overlooked attributes of animals, from the eye of a peacock tail to the beaks of birds and eyes of cats.

“We have a tabby cat, four rabbits and four Guinea pigs, and I wanted to highlight the details that are not usually looked at too closely,” she said.

Her future ambitions lay in the beauty industry where her talent with art will be a bonus.

Emily, 18, has chosen the symbolism of grief for her work which includes art inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead and jazz funerals from New Orleans.

“I wanted someone to be able to look at my work and get it, then I am very happy,” she said.

Student Liutaurita has created a pastiche of The Judgement of Paris by Peter Paul Rubens as her project is all about society’s expectations on body image for men and women through different times.
