News “Sensational” Display! 23.06.2023

A stunning exhibition of art and design recently took place at Collyer’s. Level 3 BTEC Art and Design students curated a sensational display from work created over the past two years, to celebrate their time at Collyer’s. Working in teams the students’ curated spaces including architecture, animation, illustration, concept art, fashion photography, fine art, and more.

Sharon Porter, Head of BTEC Art & Design at Collyer’s said: “We are so proud of these creative young people. They have been so enthused by the show and have been professional throughout. Not only have they curated their own spaces to an exceptionally high standard, but they have also developed marketing campaigns for the show ‘Final Cut’ and spent hours on their personal branding.

“It was a joy to see these artists taking such professional pride in their work.”

Moya Rivera-Aldridge, one of the students who took part of the exhibition said: “Seeing everyone’s work come together in such a professional way was such an exciting and inspiring experience. It was amazing to be able to share the progress we’ve made with a public audience. I feel so excited for my future”.

Abi Bruford, who also teaches on the BTEC Art and Design programme, added: “We will miss these students greatly; they’ve been such fun to work with and we wish them every success in their forthcoming degrees.”

Laura Andrews, Assistant Director of Faculty Arts at Collyer’s said: “The work on display was outstanding and really showed the individual talents and interests of the students. I know they will all have bright futures ahead of them. Congratulations to all involved, it was a wonderful, inspiring and hugely enjoyable evening.”
