Media hair and make-up students at Runshaw College took inspiration from the hit film Avatar to practise their body painting skills in their latest challenge.

“The students were up to the challenge and within a couple of hours had produced a vision that director James Cameron would be proud of.” said head of beauty at the college, Louise Bramwell.

“They have only been doing this for four weeks and they’ve really worked hard.

“There’s a lot of talent within this team and they’ve done a fantastic job.”
