Congratulations to students in Years 11, 12 and 13 who were amongst four local schools invited to take part in the Royal Academy of Arts exhibition at Kettering Museum and Art Gallery.
The exhibition which supports young local talent, runs until 26 February 2018 and includes a dedication to artist Charles Spencelayh, 60 years on from the anniversary of his death in 1958.
Students and their families were invited to a preview of the exhibition where they were able to see their artwork on display in the gallery. Head of Art Mrs Jenny Strydom said, ‘I am extremely proud of our GCSE and A level students whose work was selected for the art exhibition. Their quality and creativity is exceptional.’
Year 11 student Abbie Wallace’s photography was chosen for the exhibition, she focused on the idea of a pathway leading through a forest and used nine different photos to show what you might find. She said ‘It was a strange feeling seeing members of the public looking at our artwork, it made me feel really proud of the hard work that I had put into my project.’
Year 11 student Ella Brereton used three different photos of people that she had drawn and focused on how they could be hidden in different ways using one piece of material. She said, ‘It was really exciting to see my artwork displayed in the gallery. There were so many people there looking at our work, it was very surreal but really nice.’
