Students to help with sand sculpture

n ARTISTIC college students are set to be involved with the town’s fifth annual International Sand Sculpture Festival this year.

From June 11 until September 4, pupils will highlight the jungle theme sculptures with graphic illustrations such as billboards, entrance posters, leaflets and banners.

BTEC media production students will also make a film using time-lapse photography so visitors can watch the sculptures created in minutes.

Tom Innes (pictured), who is studying an art foundation course, is a graphic illustrator and he will be designing 100 metres of hoardings.

The 18-year-old said: “To be able to express my work on an international scale, for a great community event is a brilliant opportunity.”
