We often talk about our art, design and photography department being a vibrant and productive space promoting an atmosphere of individual creativity and lifelong learning. Last Friday showed just how true this is when the department transformed into a gallery to showcase a selection of the wonderful artwork and photography produced by our very talented pupils.
With work on show including SQA folio submissions, Higher photography exhibits and a selection of environmental art produced and inspired by the landscape of Loch Eil, visitors were spoilt for choice. The variety of both subject matter and mediums used was impressive as was the standard of the work on display. Visitors to the school’s Open Morning the following day were also able view the exhibition.
Mrs Deborah Aitken, Head of Art, Design and Photography said: ‘Our exhibition is one of the highlights of the year for us. A huge amount of work goes into each and every piece of art on display, be it a piece of jewellery or a lino cut. An initial idea has to be developed from a first sketch or outline through to a final outcome and that journey in itself, which is included in the display, is often as interesting as the final piece of work. While this exhibition covers mainly examination level art, as a department we work hard to encourage all our pupils to explore their creative side. We celebrate success at all levels through our Artwork of the Week programme and provide all pupils with the opportunity to experiment with a variety of styles and creative processes’.
