Students Triumph at Transcience Exhibition
The Foundation Diploma in Art, Design and Media were proud to launch ‘Transcience’, an art exhibition displaying their final year projects.
The title ‘Transcience’ represents the Art, Design and Media department’s journey from the old Desborough campus to a brand new building with all new facilities. The move took place late last year, with the students enjoying the light and airy thinking space that the impressive facilities offer.
The exhibition highlights some great examples of the students’ work, and gives an insight into the inspiration and creativity behind it. The vibrant and diverse exhibition displayed work from unique sculpture pieces, to impressive displays using various materials from tv screens, plants and even an umbrella!
Riona Menezes, who is studying the Pre-degree Foundation Level Art, Design and Media course said, “Preparing for the final project has been a roller coaster. Watching all the other students around you doing their work is quite inspiring and makes you want to do your very best.”
Riona came to Eastleigh College after studying A-levels and was surprised how much the course has developed her skills. “Coming from an A-level background to here was different. Artistically you broaden your horizons so much more on this course; it’s really helped me a lot.”
“My project is called ‘Burn’ and centres around information graphics and typography, with the theme being deforestation. I felt the pressure at the end but I’m happy it’s all done and I’m now so excited for university!” Riona is going on to Kingston University to study BA (Hons) Graphic Design in September, and is keen to progress in her career.
For the eleventh consecutive year, all students applying for university have secured a university place. Some of these include places at top universities including the Manchester Metropolitan School of Art, Central Saint Martins and the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art to name a few.
