TALENTED Visual Arts students at Solihull Sixth Form College have been recognised for their impressive work and have been awarded prizes by the Arts Society Arden.
Three Year 13 Visual Arts students have won awards of £200 each from the Arts Society Arden, who saw the full range of artwork on display at the recent Visual Arts exhibition at the college.
The successful students came from the BTEC Art and Design Practice course and the A level Fine Art pathway.
One of the successful BTEC students was Govinder Singh. The former Lyndon School pupil impressed the judges with his work in ceramics and wood carving.
He has just finished his course and is planning on progressing to Nottingham Trent University to study Product and Furniture Design.
Fellow BTEC student Keeley Horton – also a former student at Lyndon School – picked up an award for her concept art, animation and illustration work. She is planning on pursuing Games Design next year at Coventry University.
The third award winner is Rima Brown, who specialised in drawing and painting. A former student of Swanshurst School, Rima has been studying A level Mathematics and Physics alongside her Fine Art course and she plans to study Architecture at Birmingham City University next year.
Creative Arts Curriculum Leader Zoe Maksymiw said: “I’m really pleased to see Govinder, Keeley and Rima recognised for their highly professional and exciting work.
“The standard of the work on display at the recent exhibition was outstanding and I know that picking just three winners was very difficult. I would like to thank The Arts Society Arden for their continued support of our curriculum area.
“These awards will make a big difference for these students and will help fund art materials and equipment for the start of their degree courses,” she added.
