Summer A-Level Art Exhibition

The annual Art exhibition took place in the week commencing 17th June. The main school hall was taken over with a fantastic display celebrating the hard work and talent of our A level and GCSE students. The variety of the work produced was fantastic, with the students exploring a wide range of media and techniques with skill and innovation. Themes included portraiture, textile landscapes, seascapes, still life oil paintings, water, family connections, music festivals and natural forms. The screens were interspersed with large card board paintings and fabric pieces created by the current year 12 art students and inspired by the statues seen in the Vatican on the art departments recent art trip to Rome.

A gallery of photographs from the exhibition will be available to view…in October.

Art Trip to Rome

 

The Art trip group made it back safely from Rome despite the airport fire delaying their departure by 8 hours! Who knew a day in an airport car park could be such fun?

The students were a total joy as ever and the trip was wonderful from start to finish.
