Lower Sixth Art and Photography pupils and teachers from King’s College recently exhibited their work at the Brewhouse, Taunton.
Pupils have responded to the theme ‘Environment’ in a myriad of ways, some exploring specific places they know well or have visited, others exploring memory or the way a place makes them feel. The mediums used are as diverse as the starting points for their work. Paint, print, construction, photography, stitch, collage and mixed media are all represented, exploring diverse natural and built environments from Monet’s Garden at Giverny to London’s shop windows; from a fairground to a Kenyan ‘Matatu’ bus. The majority of the work in this exhibition was produced over a few weeks in late January/early February 2023 – we hope you enjoy it.
Our Head of Art, Mrs Schmidt, said:
"Creating work to be displayed in a public place has given the pupils a different perspective to working purely for exam grades. The work's diversity reflects the pupils' different interests and passions and the varied journeys they have been on to produce their outcomes. I was really impressed by the standard of the work, and the pupils should be very proud of their achievements."
