PHOTOGRAPHS taken by students from the JumpstART project will be on display throughout December.

The project, run by Suffolk Artlink, provides a series of art courses to adults with learning disabilities. Eleven students took part in a digital photography course and are now to exhibit their work in Debenhams cafe, in the arc.

Charlie Meyer, project development officer at Suffolk Artlink, said: “It’s a huge confidence boost, all the students were so excited to see their work printed out and displayed. It’s really given validation to their skills and shown what they are capable of.”

The students attended the 10-week course run by photographers James Fletcher and Albert Robb, where they learnt different types of photography such as landscape, composition, portrait and abstract.
