It was fantastic to welcome students, families and friends to our annual Art & Design ‘Celebration of Work’ Showcase Evening yesterday, to exhibit student work from over the last year. Turn-out was fantastic over the two hours, despite the rearranged date due to a certain England match…
So much floor space of the school was taken up with this interactive exhibition, as guests followed floor arrows through the various exhibition spaces including the Main Hall, our Dining Space, the Sports Hall, and even corridors. For one evening, our Academy was transformed into a professional art gallery, and the incredible quality of student work matched that of exhibiting artists. Parents were blown away by the talent, imagination and dedication of students to their work.“I felt the need to email you to say how overwhelmed I was with tonight’s exhibition of pupils work. Outstanding work, creativity off the scale and such attention to detail. The ideas, thoughts and feelings coming together in so many different art forms.Clearly the pupils have expert support in their ideas and projects. They are a real credit to your art team and their parents. Just wonderful. I shall look forward to more events like this.”
Many thanks to our Head of Creative Arts, Mrs Smith, and to Ms Rice, Vice Principal who are our Art & Design teachers, clearly dedicated to getting the very best out of our students, and running so many extra-curricular opportunities and Enrichment sessions to support students as they have developed their skills and porfolios! Thank you!
