UTAMU Student Designs Art Pieces From Recycled Paper

An undergraduate student at UTAMU has ventured into the art and craft business by making beautifully designed art pieces from old newspapers, magazines and recycled paper.

Some of the art pieces by Priscah Kamutuhaire. She makes the pieces from used newspapers, magazines and sometimes clothes.

Priscah Kamutuhaire’s passion for art and crafts motivated her to venture into business.

“But in addition to that, there is a lot of paper, newspapers, magazines and other paper disposed-off every single day in our environment. So I decided to give life and purpose to that forgotten paper,” says Priscah.

The 22-year-old student of Bachelor of Science in Computer Science uses her innovative and entrepreneurial skills to make money and still be able to study.

She commends UTAMU for exposing her to a lot of opportunities and nurturing her innovative and entrepreneurial skills. “UTAMU has exposed me to a lot of opportunities and I have acquired more skills. For starters I barely knew a thing about programming when I joined but that has since changed and I can proudly say I am a skilled programmer. I also happened to meet various inspirational people (in the business world) during the many fellowships and workshops attended and some have bought my products”.

Priscah Kamutuhaire’s passion for art and crafts motivated her to venture into business.

Her art and crafts business mainly deals in making paper art pieces with a blend of a few other materials. She uses paper from newspapers, magazines, recycled paper and sometimes cloth to create the beautiful pieces.

Asked on how she promotes her business to the public, Priscah said uses social media to sell her products.

“At the moment, I mostly get customers through use of social media, friends and clients. But I am planning on setting up a website and gallery from where I’ll be able to sell all my products,” she says.

Not only does she design the art prices, Priscah also deals in interior designing with a touch of craft.
