On the evening of Monday, 15 July, the artistic talents of Lytchett’s students were showcased in a breathtaking art exhibition and musical concert.
In the glorious early evening sunshine, the school orchestra performed “Carnival of the Animals” and supported an hilarious production of “Not in Front of the Waiter or Under the Aspidistra” in the beautiful setting of the Secret Garden, complete with fruit punch, strawberries and cream provided by the PTA.
This was preceded by a stunning display of exciting coursework and examination pieces demonstrated a wide range of final outcomes from a variety of diverse starting points including water, politics in art, the built environment, repetition and bus stops! Visitors were impressed with the quality and professionalism of the work on display. The high standard of creative endeavour included textiles, painting, printmaking, ceramics, collage, digital photography, darkroom photography and video. Over half of these talented students will be pursuing a career in art and design and have been accepted onto the art foundation course at the Arts University at Bournemouth or directly onto degree courses in art and design.
Some photos from the evening are included below. Well done to all those involved.
