Last week saw the GCSE and A Level art exhibition private view. Friends and family were invited along to admire the sensational display which summarised two years’ worth of art projects. Those lucky enough to receive their VIP passes were impressed by the quality, skill, and diversity of work on display. The atmosphere during the evening was electric, many proud moments were shared between family and friends, and everybody had their chance to celebrate.

Such diverse ranges of media featured in each students’ projects. Ranging from the traditional pencil, pen, and acrylic paint to more complex mixed media including stitch, plastic, ceramics, textiles, charcoal, and photography. We were lucky enough to partake in different workshops during the GCSE & A Level course allowing us to take inspiration and learn new techniques from other succeeding artists. Our teachers encouraged us to really push ourselves and expression our individualism. I overheard many visitors to the private view commenting that each students’ projects were so different and unique.

It was a fantastic opportunity for the GCSE students to visit the A Level exhibition, those taking A Level art next year were so enthused by their work and excited to start the course in September.
