Art students sell their wares
Monday, 18 December 2017
Art & Design Foundation Diploma students at Seevic College, Benfleet, auctioned off their wares last week to raise money for their end of year show.
Over 60 friends, parents, guardians and staff turned out to support the students who had just four weeks from start to finish to research, design and make an auction piece.
The pieces were one of kind decorative arts including original art pieces, sculptures, furniture and fashion.
Jack Davidson, 18 from Rayleigh, who participated in the project and who was auctioneer for the evening said: “I feel that it was a great experience to not only auction off my own work, but my peers work as well.
“All the effort we put in truly paid off as we have now been able to raise funds for much needed resources. I’d definitely do it again!”
The auction raised just over £400 which will go towards the promotion and exhibition of the students end of year art show.
Louise Chamberlain, Teacher of Art at the college said: “This was an excellent opportunity for the students to raise money for their end of year show and to experience what it is like to be designer maker.
“Everyone who attended was extremely generous and supportive of the students’ artwork”.
