Photography Exhibition for Secondary Students
Students from local secondary schools in Years 7-13, submitted photographs on the theme of plastic for an exhibition in the Long Gallery at St Helen and St Katharine.
Professional still photographer Christopher Baines (who's work appears online, in magazines and national newspapers) talked about the work on display and the range and exciting variety of photographs which had all used the same starting point.
The exhibition gave students with an interest in photography the opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional setting with feedback from a professional photographer.
The opportunit was identified by the Creative Arts Partnerships Coordinator at St Helen's and has been established for a year.
3 staff both teaching and non-teaching, from St Helen's were involved in arranging the exhibition celebration evening, administration and hanging the work.
The exhibition was shown in the news section of the St Helen's website.
Students, staff and families were invited to a celebratory evening to see the work and the work remained on display at St Helen's for 2 weeks.
