A sensory art treat!
Creative WESC Foundation learners were excited about exhibiting their sensory artwork at Exeter School for the sixth year running! The exhibition ran between 12 – 15 June 2017.
The exhibition of sensory artwork called Sensational 2017 was exhibited in the school’s Art Department Gallery.
Lesley Mehigan, WESC Foundation teacher said: “The theme for the 2017 Art Exhibition at Exeter School is ‘seasons’. The students are showcasing some of their amazing art projects that depict all the different seasons. The art work includes group projects such as the tactile autumn tree and also individual pieces including a summer flower made from textiles. WESC learners were delighted to talk about their creative pieces to the deputy head teacher at Exeter School last night at the official opening. I’m thrilled that WESC students have done so well and made a real impact with their artwork!”
Head of Art, Alison Escott, said: “It is always a real honour to showcase the creative endeavours of the visually impaired students. This year’s display is a vibrant array of practical disciplines, including mixed-media, paint and ceramics. The wonderfully tactile work produced by the students is a real sensory treat and an incredibly humbling and valuable experience for our school community.”
WESC Foundation is officially Artsmark valid up until July 2017 and this year’s exhibition is a true reflection of the learners’ creativity.
Artsmark is Arts Council England’s flagship programme to enable schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision.
