STUDENTS at Chipping Campden School exhibited their work at the annual A-Level art exhibition.

Featuring coursework and exam work by year 13 A-Level students and coursework in progress by year 12 students, the exhibition is an important opportunity for the students to share their creative endeavours with their family, friends and the public.

Work featured the usual mix of human and animal portraiture, still life, landscape and environmental themes and displayed the range of working methods and styles that students are encouraged to explore.

Two presentations took place during the evening, rewarding creative endeavour outside of the classroom.

The first, celebrating a competition run by the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery, based on their recent Hiroshige Exhibition, asked students to produce a piece of work based on the theme of ‘Mount Fuji’.

Three Chipping Campden students entered the competition and were all awarded prizes. Lily Lewis, year 8, was awarded third place, Ben Harwood, year 10, was second, and the winner of the competition was Poppy Colledge, year 8.

The second presentation marked the school’s now annual association with The Court Barn Museum in Chipping Campden.

The museum awards a bursary to a student who is going on to study art or design as part of a further education course.

The student can use the grant to fund art trips, pay for art equipment, or in any way to further their creative studies.

The student chosen this year, year 13 student Milo Leigh, is going on to study a foundation course in art at the Camberwell Art College in London and can also exhibit his current work at the Court Barn Museum in the summer of 2019.

Last year's bursary recipient, Loren Davies, will be showing a selection of Artwork created over the last year at the Court Barn Museum from Saturday.
