Art and Design Degree Show

Mrs Marneras, Mrs Dunne and 10 Year 12 students visited the Manchester Metropolitan University Art and Design degree show on Monday 19th June. Upon arriving we were met by staff at the impressive SODA (School of Digital Arts) building who welcomed us and gave us maps of the different end of year art exhibitions. We then spent the afternoon walking about the exhibitions and seeing inspirational work in Textiles, Interior Design, Graphics, Fine Art, Animation, Film making and Photography to name but a few. Students were able to talk to the artists and discuss their work with them and how university life has been. Our students on their tour took photographs and made small sketches to use to inspire their own work. They were enthralled by the work and the tour and it clearly had an impact on our students and got them thinking about their next steps in education after they leave school.

It was a fantastic visit to the Manchester Metropolitan University, well done to all the Year 12’s who came along. I hope you found it as inspirational as I did.
