Keswick School hold Annual Art Exhibition

Keswick School held its annual A-level Exhibition (wine and strawberry evening) on Wednesday with Year 13 students displaying the work they had produced over two years for their A level coursework.   It was the first year it has been held in the Queen’s Hall and there was a variety of work displayed around themes such as maps, skulls, coastal scenes and journeys.

Students studied different cultures to research their final pieces such as African, Indian and Native American culture and used a variety of ways to interpret this including to pencil, paint, glass, ceramics and paper sculptures. Their inspiration comes from artists such as Mary O’Malley and Melanie Hopwood, Julie Shackson, Jason Borders and Ann Wood, to name but a few.

The evening was a great success with a variety of work exhibited through different mediums including ceramics, fashion accessories, fused glass and textiles and a number of our students will be pursuing an Art based course in Carlisle, Northumbria and Bolton.

The Head of Art, Miss Janine Hallworth said ‘As always I am thoroughly impressed with the standard of work which shows creativity and individuality’.
