VISUAL Arts students at Solihull Sixth Form College have been recognised for their outstanding coursework this year.

BTEC Art and Design Practice students put on an exhibition of their work for member of the Arts Society Arden to view.

Three prizes of £200 each were awarded for what the Society judged to be the best work.

Among the successful students was Farzana Akter who produced work related to home furnishings, designing and upholstering an armchair and designed wall hangings.

Farzana, formerly of Tile Cross Academy, is progressing to Birmingham City University to study for a BA (Hons) degree in Textile Design.

Former Tudor Grange Academy student Nina Dredger also won a prize for her sculpture work, which made great use of colour.

Nina is moving onto the University of York to study Art History.

Charlie Wells, formerly a student at Langley School, picked up a prize for his architecture model, which included great attention to detail.

He has chosen to pursue a degree in Architecture at Liverpool University after his studies at the college.

Curriculum leader Zoe Maksymiw said: “We are grateful to the Arts Society Arden for their generosity.

“They have supported the college’s visual arts department for many years and the awards they hand out mean a lot to the students.

“They had some lovely things to say about the standard of work of our BTEC students, which was great to hear.”
