10th Annual Art and Design Exhibition

The Art and Design department, held its tenth Annual Art Exhibition on Thursday 22nd June. It was really well received by all who attended, including the Deputy Mayor of the Vale of Glamorgan, Cllr Leighton Rowlands and his consort, Miss Melanie Owen, the deputy Mayor of Cowbridge Cllr Terry Williams and Mayoress, Mrs Jane Williams plus a host of our highly supportive governors including the Chair of governors, Mrs Hilary Drew. Parents and students viewed an outstanding variety and quality of work that had been selected and presented by the students themselves which included GCSE, AS and A2 level in both Fine Art and Photography. The A2 level, year 13 students wrote a brief summary of what they hoped to do when they leave school and what they had particularly enjoyed about the Art and Design course. It is interesting to see the variety of routes the students are pursuing at higher education, including Architecture, Business Management, Psychology, Geology, Education as well as direct entry into Fine Art/Photography courses and Art Foundation. A very strong bond is always forged between students and staff and we had several past students who came back to view this year’s exhibition who were also impressed by the high Standard. A selection of AS Level Fine Art will be on exhibition in the Old Hall, Cowbridge from the 2nd October until the 10 th November 2017 in case you missed this year’s show. All welcome.
