Art & Design students showcased their most cherished work in a Visual Art Exhibition as part of their final project for the academic year. The exhibition celebrated the young talent in Southwark, including work from courses, Fashion, 3D Design, Art, and Media and was live for visitors to view over the course of three weeks as part of this year’s Southwark College’s Creative Arts Summer Show.
The exhibition began with an opening ceremony and a speech from the Vice Principal at Southwark College, Scott Peasey, who welcomed the friends and families of the students, staff, and the public to the exhibition. Visitors were then given the opportunity to roam the Art and Fashion galleries, take pictures, learn more about the artworks, interact with games, visual screens, face filters and watch a short film.
Samuel White, a Media Production and Technology student at Southwark College said: “For the final project, I have created a game called Stickman Fury which is developed to test and exercise cognitive skills and ability. The inspiration for this game is from Club Penguin and the name was generated using Artificial Intelligence (AI). I am glad that as part of our course we have been able to curate and showcase this exhibition and can display our work to the public, this is a great way to observe how visitors interact with my product.”
Emilie Baril, an Art and Design student at Southwark College said: “The project I worked on is called ‘Regeneration’ and we had to think about what regeneration means to us as individuals. For me, it meant thinking about art and nature and how that can come together to influence fashion. My inspiration for the dress I have designed and created are artists such as Winslow Homer and John Everett Miles.”
Southwark College offers a variety of Creative Arts courses, including Music, Drama, Media, Fashion, Games Design, and Art & Design. For more information, visit southwark.ac.uk/creativearts.
