BATH COLLEGE MIX UP – Art and Design end of year show

Bath College is celebrating the work of talented art and design students with an end of year show open to the public.

 

Final year students studying graphic design, art and design, photography, fashion and textiles, product design and fine art are all displaying their work at the exhibition.

 

Prospective students are encouraged to visit and see the wide range of art specialisms available to study at the college.

 

Jo Sanders, Deputy Head of Department for Creative Arts and Enterprise, said the display would give students valuable exhibition experience. “We are very pleased with this year’s innovative exhibition.

 

“I would advise everyone with an interest in a creative career to come along and have a look at our fantastic facilities and work.”

 

Students studying art and design benefit from access to specialist equipment in a highly regarded department.

 

“A high proportion of students are going on to study at university, including Rhianne Good and Amber Bowerman who have secured places at the Old Vic Theatre School to study costume design, Joseph Amies, who is going to Magdalen College, Oxford University to study Fine Art and Caitlin Allison, who is going to Central St. Martins to study Architecture.”

 

“I’m really proud of our students when I see the journeys they have made. It’s particularly rewarding for staff to be able to help students in a new environment.”

 

The exhibition is open to the public on Thursday 21 June to Saturday 23 June from 10am to 4pm.

Love2Learn ‘Take Part’ Exhibition showcases Bath College student talent

Last week Bath College held an exhibition showcasing a wealth of talent from part-time leisure course Love2Learn students.
 
The work exhibited was from a wide range of disciplines including: Painting, Printmaking, Photography, Glass, Jewellery, Sculpture and many more.
 

The exhibition ran for four days, with a grand opening evening at which students were presented awards by The Mayor of Bath and the Deputy Principal of the College. The award categories were Fine Art, Design Crafts, 3D, 2D, Design/Photography and Student of the Year.
 
Jayne Davis, Deputy Principal said: “The College is very proud of all its learners including Love2Learn and the Take Part show is an excellent example of why it is important to the College to show off learner work to the wider community.
 
“The annual show is a clear demonstration of learners’ commitment and creativity as well as local talent. Thanks and congratulations go to all learners and staff who worked hard to put such a high quality show together.”
 
The calibre of the pieces was extremely high, leading to visitors purchasing much of the work displayed.
 
Maureen Hosier won the Student of the Year award. Stephen Handley, the course leader described why she won: “Maureen has a dedication and enthusiasm which is contagious both for tutors and fellow students. Her work always has a glimpse of humour and we never detect the hard work; so effortless is the result.
 
“She works with scrap metal but moreover a great student or Artist is the one who inspires others to go explore alternative or new disciplines to see or think in a different way.
 
“This is an Artist. She is an Artist.”
