Millom School’s vibrant exhibition to showcase young artists’ skills
Last updated at 12:59, Thursday, 22 May 2014
A VIBRANT range of artwork will go on display at a school this summer, showcasing the talents of its students.
Pupils studying GCSE art at Millom School will exhibit their work on June 30, giving other students, their parents and teachers the chance to enjoy it.
All of the work which will go on display was created under exam conditions, and the students maintained a great deal of independence in the production of their art.
Simone Faulkner, of Haverigg, is head of art at Millom School, and is pleased to see the annual exhibition come back around.
She said: “I’m delighted to see how far they’ve come. I think they’ve done really well and some of the work is just outstanding. It’s amazing to see how much they’ve developed over the past two years.”
One student looking forward to showing her work at the end of June is Emily Coulson, 15, of Millom. Emily’s work has the theme of plant life, and she used that guidance to create an enormous sunflower.
She said: “It’s been great doing art here. They have a good range of facilities and everything like that.
“The research has also been interesting, and we’ve had to look at a lot of different artists for inspiration. The teachers have been really supportive all the way.”
Another student who has felt his art develop under the teaching of staff at the school is Daniel Armstrong, 16, of Bootle.
He said: “It’s been really fun. I wasn’t very good at first but now I look at my work and think I’m spot on. Mrs Faulkner has definitely been a big help in getting me to improve my work.”
The creation of a final piece is not all the students have to do to make the grade. They also have to show a wide range of research into materials and art history. The exhibition will be open to parents on July 1.
