30 students, across year groups at Felpham Community College, are celebrating having their art work selected for a public exhibition at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester.
The students, from years 7 through to 12, are having their work showcased as part of an exhibition entitled ‘Model Gallery of the Future.’ They were tasked with making a small artwork on only a 10x10cm canvas. From the successful 30 FCC entries, five students will have their work selected to be exhibited in a central part of the gallery – the Maquette.
Mrs Tompkins, Curriculum Leader for Art and Photography commented: “Congratulations to everyone who has had their work selected, and in particular the five students chosen for the Maquette – Matvejus Fjodorovas (year 7), Dulcie Middleton (year 8), and Darcie Windsor, Elliot Gettings and Kurtis Allies (all from year 10). On the 5th and 6th April we presented everyone who has been selected with a certificate at a celebration event as we are really proud of what they have achieved. Having your work shown in a gallery is something so many people can only aspire to, and at FCC we have 30 students achieving this success this year! Well done to everyone who took part. We are all hoping to go and see the exhibition when it opens.”
Willow-Rose Hite, year 12 student commented: ”It was fun to come up with my design as it had to be really small! I am looking forward to going to the exhibition myself and showing my family.”
The exhibition runs from the 8th to 24th April at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester and is open to the public, please click on the link for more information Pallant House Gallery | Home
