During the Spring half-term holiday, Powys secondary school pupils with a special talent in the visual arts worked with Cardiff-based film-maker Carolina Vasquez at Oriel Davies Gallery, to create short animated films. Each one was made over the course of just a single day in animation masterclasses with the artist. 

The ‘Art Factor' is designed to nurture talent and develop skills and confidence in GCSE and A Level pupils who have been identified as being more able and talented in the visual arts. The purpose of the ‘Art Factor’, which is funded by the Arts Council of Wales and Powys County Council is to boost confidence, and encourage these talented individuals to pursue an education, and maybe even a career in the visual arts.
