Five hair and media make-up students had the chance to showcase their artistic skills at an exclusive preview event of the Skills Show in London.
Held at the Music Room in Mayfair, the event aimed to give journalists and sponsors a taste of what's to come at the main Skills Show event at the NEC Birmingham in November. As well as showcasing body art skills they'd learnt in the classroom on one another, the enthusiastic students also encouraged visitors to have a go at media make-up themselves, giving journalists hints and tips on brush strokes, colour blending and how to steady the hand.
Performing Arts students from South Thames College put their acting skills to good use by starring in two short films to help drive a council initiative.
Produced by the Borough Early Intervention Team (BEIT) as part of the Wandsworth borough crime prevention initiative, the two films focus on topics of gangs and street robbery and will be used in local schools and youth centres to engage young people in discussions about youth crime.

Creative students proved they were more than just front as they designed the shop window and interior of 'Fayre and Square', a brand-new pop-up shop in Wimbledon’s Centre Court Shopping Centre set up by Volunteer Centre Merton (VCM).
It gave BTEC Art and Design students the opportunity to demonstrate their creative flair and eye for design in VCM’s new store. The shop provides a space for local tradespeople and independent businesses to sell their products as well as giving young people of Merton the chance to gain retail experience. It was officially opened by the Mayor of Merton on Friday 7 June so it's been good exposure for our staff and students.
