The students were given the theme ‘Sea-Change’ which art teachers and students alike were creatively free to interpret in whatever manner they chose. Everything from sea pollution to underwatersurrealism to ‘Sea change ‘ being a massive transformation or shift in thinking.

This exhibition will take the format of a large series of postcard sized artworks, hung in a fashion to create visual impact as a whole as well as individual creativity.

The exhibition will run from April 17th -23rd.. If you would like to download the PDF version of the presentation Student Exhibition 2018
