RuTC’s (Richmond upon Thames College) Level 1 Art, Design and Media students wowed visitors to their art exhibition, which was based on the themes of ‘Nature, Portrait and Underwater.’
Students made some highly skilled pieces including, intricate ceramic underwater creatures and plants, contextualised natural landscape interpretations as well as abstract and realist portraits.
As well as displaying their art as a physical exhibition, the students also created their own websites to display and promote their artwork and ceramics.
This year’s Level 1 Art, Design and Media students will either progress onto Level 2 Art and Design or Level 2 Creative Media, depending on which aspect of their Level 1 course they enjoyed the most.
Alice Swinhoe, art teacher at RuTC was proud of how well the exhibition went, explaining “My students have been working extremely hard all term to put together their first ever exhibition and I am ecstatic at the result. Students and parents alike felt proud of their hard work and it was a wonderful first go, showing the students what is required to plan, create and exhibit their work. I am proud of each student who helped put the exhibition together, they will all make fantastic Level 2 students.”
The end goal for the ‘Nature, Portrait and Underwater’ exhibition was for students to celebrate their hard-work and effort over the term, whilst exhibiting their intricate and meaningful pieces of art, to their peers and college staff.
