Art and Media students host creative celebration evening
Tuesday, 11 June 2013
Art & Media students celebrated the end of the academic year in style by hosting a fantastic evening of art, culture and entertainment on Thursday 6 June.
The multi-media event included exhibitions of film, photography, paintings, graphic design, fashion and textiles, installations and live performances.
In addition, a ‘Creative Minds’ Artist Seminar saw three professional artists showcasing their work and discussing how they have succeeded in their respective fields.
The College’s Faculty of Art & Culture is rapidly expanding, with a number of new courses starting in September 2013 including the Higher National Diploma (HND) in Art & Design – a Higher Education qualification.
Faculty Director for Arts & Culture & Curriculum Innovation Ana Guimaraes said: “The event has been a tremendous success and has been enormously beneficial for all of the students involved. It has allowed each of them to think from a professional perspective, in regards to how they can frame their work and how their audience will perceive it. The students have stayed committed, been driven to perfection and have gone that extra mile to stretch their imagination.”

Nineteen-year-old Ryan Shaw, who studies BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Art & Design, exhibited his work on the night. He said: “The Show was a really great opportunity for me to exhibit my work in a professional setting. Next year I’m planning to study Architecture at University, so learning how to present my work has been really useful.”
Chris Musto, a music industry Graphic Designer whose clients have included The Rolling Stones and The Clash, was one of three professional Artists who appeared as special guest speakers at the ‘Creative Minds’ Artist Seminar.
Afterwards, Chris said: “I’ve been blown away by the End of Year Show, and would employ people at the drop of a hat off the back of one of these. These types of events benefit students massively; when I see and talk to the students I can see they are all super-motivated and have as good idea of where they want to be.”
