Museum to show pupils’ art

THOUSANDS of visitors will have the chance to admire art created by Felpham students.

 

A group of nine pupils at Felpham Community College have had six of their artworks selected for the latest summer exhibition at Arundel Museum.

 

They were chosen from more than 500 pieces submitted from across the area and will be among 80-plus artworks created by students as part of their GCSE or A-level course work.

 

Suzanne Evans, the museum’s education officer, said: “We are delighted that this year Lord Arundel, the Duke of Norfolk’s son, will open the exhibition.

 

“Last year, several of the artworks shown were subsequently sold to visitors at the exhibition.

 

“All negotiations for sales were carried out via the individual schools and purchaser. We hope as many of the students whose work is being shown and their families will be able to come along to celebrate the brilliant work they have done.”

 

The exhibition at the museum in Mill Road will take place from August 7-28.

 

Last year’s event saw more than 3,000 people visit the museum’s Jubilee Gallery to view the highly acclaimed exhibition.

 

College curriculum leader for art and photography, Anna Harvey, said: “This is a great way to celebrate some of the fantastic work our students have created this year.

 

“To have your coursework shown in a formal exhibition is quite an achievement.”

 

The successful students were: Year 8 – Lucie Ashill, Ashaf Ahmed; Year 11 – Natasha Bulic, Carlie Jellet, Charlie Louitt, Alice Rennie; Year 13 – Molly Emerson, Millie Hammond.
