Art and Design Adult Students attend Koestler Awards Exhibition

Wednesday 22 November 2017

 

In November, adult students from Richmond upon Thames College studying on both the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design (Pre-BA) and Access to HE: Art and Design, visited the Koestler Awards exhibition at the London Southbank Centre and participated in guided tour. The exhibition, curated by renowned artist, Antony Gormley, showcases artwork produced in the UK’s prisons, secure hospitals and immigration removal centres with the aim of breaking down negative stereotypes through highlighting the talent and potential of ex-offenders to the public.

“Extra-curricular trips like this are a fantastic opportunity for students to develop their understanding of art, and take inspiration away with them that they can apply to their own work and studies. The students are particularly moved to hear about the contexts within which the art has been created” commented Caroline King, Art and Design lecturer at Richmond upon Thames College.
