The work being displayed was created by GCSE and A-level Art, Textiles and Photography students in response to a brief to work to one of the school ‘values’ – in this case ‘Creative’ (other values being: Reflective, Inquisitive, Flexible, Ambitious’ and Confident).
The exhibition will be displayed at Brentfords local art centre, Watermans, and represents a broad section of work produced for examination and end of year exhibition. Some of the work is thematic and was developed in collaboration with the London Museum of Water & Steam in Kew London Museum of Water & Steam in Kew and others were responses to portraiture, figurative studies and other themes. At A-level students choose their own work themes and therefore outcomes become more personal in nature, perhaps focusing on a particular issue and entrenched with meaning. Students are able to look at a variety of artists and photographers and respond appropriately in their preferred media.
Brentford School for Girls is intent on developing their students’ creativity and receives outstanding results in Art & Design, Textiles and Photography. Annually a good number of students go on to study these subjects at leading Art Colleges and Universities and gain jobs within the Creative Industries.
The staff and students at Brentford School for Girls are grateful for the support of Watermans as this is a fantastic opportunity for students to showcase work. This opportunity allows for students to gain knowledge and recognition for their first public exhibition.
