Barton Peveril Students Exhibit Work
Five Barton Peveril Sixth Form College students have had their artwork featured in the annual Sixth Form Colleges Association (SFCA) National Art Exhibition. This year’s exhibition is taking place online, from 1st to 22nd July.
The SFCA National Art Exhibition provides the country’s students with the opportunity to showcase their work, created in College, to large audiences nationally. Just 250 students, from 58 colleges, had the opportunity to feature in this year’s online exhibition.
The Barton Peveril students whose work was showcased are A Level students Euan Allen (of Crestwood Community School), Katie Goodson (of The Henry Cort Community College), and Angela Lac (of St. Anne’s Catholic College) and Foundation Diploma in Art and Design (FAD) students Ben Chinnock (of The Mountbatten School) and Ben Cross (of Cams Hill School). FAD is a post-A Level course endorsed by the University of the Arts: London, which helps students prepare for art-based degrees at university.
This year’s exhibition is titled ‘Fake News’ and features work that showcases students’ creative interpretations of the theme and their reflections on how hard it can be to distinguish fact from fiction.
Speaking on her work being exhibited, Angela Lac said:
“The exhibition has been an honour to represent the College and my work, and I am in awe of all the creative differentiations of the theme, as I believe it is heavily important to have a very diverse approach to a subject, especially regarding fake news where the truth is so universally hidden.”
Barton Peveril’s Art Studio Assistant, Patrycja Pluta, commented on her students’ successes:
“It has been an absolute pleasure to see so many of our students engage with the theme of ‘Fake News’ in a versatile, creative and considerate way. We will forever be grateful for the opportunity given by SFCA, which allowed our students to have a creative outlet. These outstanding artworks will be a reminder of how proud we were of their determination and innovative ideas towards the brief.”
