After what seems like centuries, my exams are over, I've ventured out of my crazy revision phase & am experiencing things I had forgotten existed... free time, sun, socializing - hooray!!
Last night, my family, best friend & I went to my school's exhibition of all the Art, Textiles & Technology work to wrap up our year of art (and to show our work to the moderators - how scary!).
As an art student, I was in my element, flicking through nearly all sketchbooks, I just
couldn't can't stay away. Here is a snippet of my evening.
In the main hall, there was a collection of AS & A2 coursework & exam work which was amazing! I love this little painting from a Paris trip.
For me, the A2 sketchbooks and final pieces were most interesting as they got me thinking about my project for next year (we get to choose!).
This sketchbook belongs to my incredibly talented friends, Cherelle. Some definite sketchbook envy aha!
And below are my sketchbook & display board - just at the entrance ready to be trodden on, great aha!
The photos at the top are of my sculpture, the abstract pieces are inspired by the shapes in my sculpture & the tiny piece of a painting at the bottom of my board is the result of a 5 hour exam... (Don't worry the aim of the exam is the quality, not a finished product haha)
After having seen each sketchbook and art piece many many times, myself & En-Jia wondered down to the Textiles room.
Don't you just love these fabrics...
Clothes, bags & sketchbooks were all on display and there were lots of pretty sketches involved.
Below are some design ideas created by my creative fashion guru of a friend - Louise!
After having been to the rest of the exhibition, I had to come back to the art room for one of my favourites, these children's dresses were created for an A2 Art exam with the title 'Submerged'. The installation included a few other bits and pieces but the dresses were my favourite part.
There was so much more to the exhibition (even some street art) but this is a little insight of how inspiring the evening was. I think it was better than your average exhibition as you could look through the sketchbooks & see all the ideas working towards the final pieces.
Bring on next year's!
