This year’s Art and DT Exhibition demonstrated the huge talent and potential of Cokethorpe pupils. From traditional painting and sculpture through to installation, textiles, film, photography and product design you could see a wealth of individual creativity and inspiration. The courageous attitude of the pupils led to thought provoking and challenging outcomes which culminated in an outstanding and diverse show.
The Art Award Holders responded to the theme self portrait, the young artists demonstrated their skills with sensitive use of paint to capture there own reflections in a variety of styles along with clever use of sculpture, shadow and digital media.
The private view was a busy evening and our artists enjoyed showing off their artwork to friends and family and for myself and Mrs Brown it was lovely to hear all the positive and encouraging comments praising our students hard work.
We look for to following the future of our artists as they move on to Degree’s in Graphic Design and Illustration, Film Direction, Marine Photography and Art Foundations. It is always sad to see them move on, especially after producing amazing work, but now our attention moves to following the progress of our Lower Sixth, Fourth Form and the Art Award Holders and supporting them to follow the success of this year's exhibition.
