This January students from King Edward VI Community College showcase examples of their art work in another exhibition at Birdwood House. This has now become an annual event that has in earlier years impressed visitors with the quality and extent of the creativity amongst young people at the school. Our 2017 show looks set to build on this reputation with examples of painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and sculpture but also film making. Art works from all year groups will be included with a focus on work produced for GCSE, AS and A2 qualifications.
We’re very lucky at KEVICC to have our own gallery space within the Ariel Centre and through a combination shows from visiting artists but also through support from the Foundation Governors, we're able to offer workshops from many visiting professional artists and makers. Art trips to London and Italy also play a major role. Our students therefore, experience the highest standard of teaching within the curriculum possible and we hope you’ll agree the outcomes are excellent. In previous exhibitions at Birdwood House, members of the public often reflect on their own art courses ‘back in the day' and comment on the standards achieved today as being greatly superior. Sixth form students steward the exhibition throughout and are available to talk about their work and the exhibition.
Saturday 2nd to Friday 8th February ~ 10am - 4.45pm Monday to Friday, 12pm opening on Saturday 2nd.
An exhibition of work by pupils from Berry Pomeroy Primary School
Monday 11th February to Saturday 16th February ~ 10am - 4.45pm
This closed group meets each week to draw or paint from different models and has been doing so since 2004 There is no tutor but members can request that others offer comments and reactions to their work. The poses vary in length between five and forty minutes and occasionally a model is asked to move slowly throughout a particular pose.
Visitors are invited to make a drawing of themselves, another visitor or the invigilator. On some occasions one of the artists will be present and you are invited to take a seat and be drawn. Feel free to take away your drawing or pin it up on the board by the table for other visitors to enjoy.
