Story of a Young Artist: Amira Haddad


Now one of our student ambassadors, Amira joined Rosetta Art Centre in 2013, with a passion for creativity but she never felt confident enough to create. Originally studying painting class, Amira says “her skills developed as fast as her confidence” and she received one of the highest assessment marks of her year. Since then, she has studied life drawing and pottery and has developed herself into a multidisciplinary artist, still exploring and pushing into new creative territories!

“Rosetta has helped me follow my creative dreams and given me the confidence to go on to further eduction”.
