The work of talented art students from Saint Paul’s was showcased in an art exhibition in the heart of the community, at Manchester Airport which was visited by students, staff, parents, friends and the local community. The exhibition was opened by the Lord Mayor, Councillor June Hitchen.
The Art department showcased students’ work in an exhibition titled Cultures. Cultures showed Aztec prints from the Year 8s, World Art by the Year 9s and African art and vases created by our Year 10 and Year 11 students.
“The students have created wonderful works of art from an array of materials. Each piece is so different and many reflect the inner thoughts of the students,” explained Miss Coyle, Head of Art. “The students were so pleased and proud to showcase their work; there was a tremendous amount of time, energy, imaginative creativity and dedication on display.”
“I enjoyed showing the Lord Mayor the students’ work and explaining the thought processes behind the pieces. The Lord Mayor said that she was very impressed and that she would like to hear more so invited us to afternoon tea at the Town Hall.”
“We have a wealth of creative talent at Saint Paul’s and the exhibition, which was full of ingenious creations, was a fantastic example of the creativity of the young people at our school. It was a joy to see the culmination of the work from students; their work shows great maturity and depth,” said Mr Hren, Head Teacher.
