International artist, Sarah Douglas, visited

Runshaw Adult College to talk to students studying for their Foundation Degree

in Fine Art on her experience of the art world and the inspiration behind her

paintings. The fascinating talk helped to motivate students and gave them

invaluable information when it comes to deciding on the direction of their

future career.

fantastic. The talk was very informative and she spoke openly about her

experience and answered all questions in an honest and enthusiastic manner. It

was an uplifting experience for the students.”

their individual work. The students ended the day on a real high, they were all

full of praise for Sarah’s delivery, content and the knowledge she shared.
