Students from Stratford-upon-Avon College have shared their work with the public in a range of exhibitions hosted at the college campus and online.

The Visual Arts showcase was well attended and gave everyone a chance to see the incredible work that the students had created

Beginning with a media showcase which allowed both first- and second-year Digital Media Production students to share their final major projects, the students were joined by staff, family and friends to watch all the work created. This included hearing episodes of podcasts and watching music videos, documentaries, TV shows and short films which were created using the state-of-the-art equipment and facilities at the college including the new TV and Radio Studios.

The students were treated to cinema themed snacks while their work was showcased

This was followed by a second event set up in the College’s Gordon Vallins Theatre as a Visual Arts exhibition. Showcasing the work from Art & Design, Photography, Graphic Design and Fashion students, the exhibition was delivered over two floors giving audience members a chance to walk around and see the wealth of incredible work created.

Events showcasing students work is incredibly important. Not only does it allow students to prepare for working in industry and preparing a portfolio, it gives members of the public and friends and family a chance to see the stunning work created by the students and can inspire future students to see what they can achieve.

Programme Manager for the Creative Arts, Philip Watson-Smith, was incredibly proud of the work on display: “The Visual Arts Exhibition is always a highlight in the calendar as it celebrates the success of the learners work. The evening was so well attended and received by the public with really positive feedback despite the event being up against the England football match.

Students have worked so hard to develop their final pieces and this is backed up by the ongoing hard work and support of the teaching team who go above and beyond to support the learners in achieving.”
