Pupils from the Westbridge Academy in Ipswich will have their artwork put on display at the town’s Tourist Information Centre in St Stephen’s Church later this month.
The exhibition, Portraits from Westbridge Academy: Exploring Identity through Portraiture, runs from April 17 to 24.
Art teacher Nicola Axford said: “While studying at Westbridge, students have the opportunity to explore identity through a portraiture project. Photography is used to capture a suitable image that expresses the way students see themselves.
“These are then worked up into large-scale paintings that use spray paint in the background to communicate mood and atmosphere, and acrylic paint to practice detail and character on the figures.”
She added: “Students gain a lot from developing these techniques to produce their successful final pieces displayed here.”
