Body Confident

During this one day workshop students will take part in a host of activities aiming to establish positive body image, through the abolishing of myths created by digital enhancements.

The workshop will demonstrate the techniques used by industry professionals to alter and enhance real images, which become not just unnatural, but in many cases are unachievable. Additionally students will explore natural body shapes, finishing with the creation of their very own positive body campaigns.

Anxiety about looks begins at an early age. In a study of 1,200 10 to 17 year olds,
a majority of girls, 72 percent said they felt ‘tremendous pressure’ to be beautiful.
