St. Louis Students show their 'True Colours'
Words of congratulations to Katy Goodwin and Jessica Campbell were in abundance as the Sixth Form Art Students continued St. Louis excellent tradition of success in the world of Art. Both students had their Art work selected for this year’s CCEA True Colours Exhibition, which debuted in the Ulster Museum.
From detailed paintings to innovative three dimensional work and striking fashion design, the 'True Colours' exhibition show cases the excellent creative work produced by CCEA candidates in 2012.
Northern Irish artist Ross Wilson officially opened the exhibition on Thursday 10 January in front of the student exhibitors, their family, friends and teachers. Speaking at the event he commented:
“CCEA’s vibrant True Colours exhibition will surely brighten up the dreary month of January for visitors to the Ulster Museum. It is a pleasure and honour for me to see at first hand the work of so many talented young people.
I have found the eclectic mix of design, printmaking, painting and sculpture both inspiring and encouraging. I look forward to hearing the names of many of these students in the years to come as they progress in the field of art and design” stated Mr. Wilson.
Congratulating the students on their work, Richard Hanna, CCEA's Chief Executive, commented: “True Colours is very much a fixture in the educational calendar. It is both a celebration of the excellent art and design work in our schools, and an opportunity for students and teachers to come along and see what it takes to make the top grades”.
The Art and Design Department are extremely proud of both girls. Katy is currently completing AS Art and Design and Jessica is completing A2 Art and hopes to embark on a Degree course in Animation next year. We wish them continued success in their future creative endeavours.
