Bath College is celebrating the work of over 160 talented art and design students with an end of year show open to the public.

Final year students studying graphic design, 3D design, fashion 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.

David Merriman, Head of Department for Art and Design, said the display would give students valuable exhibition experience.

He said: “We’re particularly pleased with this end of year show. With the development of new technology in creative industries we’re finding that much of our students’ work is finished to high industry standards.

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

A high proportion of students are going on to study at university, including Ruby Abba-Heney, 20, from Bath, who has received an offer to study fashion photography at the London College of Fashion.

Mr Merriman said: “We’re finding our students are continually offered places at sought after universities. Ruby started on the Level 2 art and design course and made a great success of that.

“She worked her way through Level 3 photography and has photographed several events for the college to a really high standard.

“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 when their recent educational experiences have been less successful.

“This is what further education at college is about, second chances, and all our students are very important to us.”

The exhibition is open to the public on Saturday June 25th from 10am to 2pm. Doors are also open from Monday June 27th to Wednesday June 29th between 10am and 6pm.

Fashion and textiles students are holding an end of year fashion show on Thursday June 30th. The first show runs from 6pm to 8pm and the second from 8pm to 9pm.
