End of Year Exhibition at NESCol Fraserburgh Campus

The North East Scotland College Fraserburgh Campus Art & Design and Floristry Exhibition 2016 takes place this week.  This hotly anticipated event, held annually in the atrium of the Campus, gives Art & Design and Floristry students the opportunity to showcase the best of their work.  It is open to the public and will provide visitors with a fantastic insight into the hard work and creativity of this talented group of NESCol students. 

This year’s show will see around thirty full-time art and design students, from Level 4 to HNC, showcase a selection of both 2- and 3-dimensional work they have produced over the course of the year, including examples of drawing, painting, printmaking, jewellery, textiles, photography, digital media and a collection of clothing made from paper.  The projects undertaken by the students have been inspired by a wide array of themes including local landmarks and popular TV show Game of Thrones.  In addition, a highlight of the exhibition will be a collection of t-shirts designed and customised by pupils from Mintlaw and Fraserburgh Academies, based on the theme of Scottish landmarks, displaying a variety of textile techniques and processes.

The College’s floristry students are creating themed displays for the show, utilising the skills and techniques they have learned throughout the year, including hand-tying, function decorating and colour theory.

David Herd, Curriculum and Quality Manager for Creative Arts at Fraserburgh Campus, said, “We would like to encourage anyone interested in studying Art & Design or Floristry at Fraserburgh Campus to come along during the week and have a chat with staff and students about the different options.  Places are still available on courses starting after the summer so now is the perfect time to find out more.”
