Art Fair a Great Success

The annual Art fair was held on Thursday 2nd July. We were pleased to see so many parents, students, ex-pupils and friends of the Art Dept in attendance. Pupils negotiated sales of their work, and everyone spent time looking in detail at the works on display. The department had been transformed into a striking exhibition space which really showcased our talented pupils art pieces.

The following GCSE pupils were chosen to represent the Academy in an exhibition to take place at The Theatre by the lake in Keswick this summer: Heidi and Nina Birschel, Josh Routledge and Caitlin Bell. They all received certificates from representatives of the Cumbria Decorative and Fine Arts Society who are coordinating the exhibitions. 

The A Level students chosen were Jake Martin, Hannah Stones and Freya Blackburn. Look out for details of the exhibitions on the Theatre’s website. The Art Dept also chose Freya Blackburn to be the recipient of this years Art Award which was presented by our Chair of Governors Thelma Toman. Freya has immense talent, is going on to study photography at Cardiff University, and we wish her well in her future creative endeavours. Thank you to everyone who made the evening such a success.
