St Clare’s School Art Exhibition

Written by: St Clare’s School

Young artists from St. Clare’s School in Porthcawl proudly displayed their fantastic artwork in this year’s end of year Summer Exhibition. The exhibition was the end product of months of hard work by pupils working towards their GCSE, ‘AS’ and ‘A’ Level qualifications in Art & Design, Textiles and Graphic Design. This has been the first year that St. Clare’s School has offered Textiles and Graphic Design, and Art teachers Louise Williams and Laura Evans have been thrilled with the success and enthusiasm of the pupils.

The variety of work was admired by parents, past and present pupils, and members of the public last week in a celebration of the time and effort that has gone in over the last school year by the talented pupils. The Senior School Hall was transformed by an impressive array of colourful portraits and textiles for visitors to enjoy.  There was an excellent turnout and pupils were praised for the high quality of work in their portfolios and final pieces.

Headmaster Simon Antwis said:

“I am delighted and impressed by the high standard of work that has been produced by our pupils, and would like to congratulate them on their hard work. I am sure that our younger pupils have been inspired by the work on display here today.”

A focal point of the exhibit was an outstanding piece produced by Year 12 pupil Matthew Aylward-Wilding, for which he is through to the finals of a national art competition. Matthew’s self-portrait, entitled “Human Decay” impressed the judges at Specialist Crafts Art & Design Magazine and has been shortlisted for the cover competition.
