SMA opened its doors to parents and the public on 30 June to showcase the talent and achievement of A-Level students.
The annual exhibition displayed a diverse range of artwork, from 3D-design, fine art, and photography, to textiles and street art.
The growing art department encourages students to experience art first-hand wherever possible, visiting galleries and exhibition spaces as part of the department’s enrichment programme.
This academic year, sixth form students visited Barcelona to experience some of the city’s iconic sights, including Gaudi’s marvel, La Sagrada Familia, and the Picasso museum. Meanwhile, year 12 took up the department’s annual residency in Bron-y-Gader, North Wales, where students were able to build their coursework portfolio ahead of embarking upon the A2 programme.
Mrs Davidson, Head of Art at SMA, says: “The level of artwork produced by this year’s sixth form has been extremely high, and I am delighted that we have been able to showcase this impressive talent to those who came along yesterday.
“SMA’s art department aims to foster and nurture creativity within all of our students, encouraging them to think independently and produce artwork that really matters to them. This is why our annual art exhibition is so important, as it celebrates the unique thinking and expression of all our pupils who were able to share and celebrate their finished work with friends, family and the public”.
