Art & Design Technology Exhibition

Wednesday 26 June

Venue: The Old Gymnasium Gallery
Time: Private View from 6.00pm (and then open throughout the Festival)

St Edmund’s School showcases these two dynamic departments as they come together for their annual exhibition of pupils’ work.

The Art Department’s open-minded and fluid approach to meeting the creative needs of our pupils means we are able to present an eclectic, wide range of work produced by our student Fine Artists, Ceramicists and Photographers. Analytical, representational, illustrative, abstract and expressive responses will provide a feast for the eyes and encourage discussion from the viewer.
The Design Technology department showcases the creative range of work produced by our talented GCSE and A Level students. The inspirational designs and prototypes on display take into consideration issues such as market need, function, engineering, sustainability, style and aesthetics.
Visitors are warmly invited to the Private View to meet the artists and enjoy refreshments prepared by our Leiths Academy students.
