STUDENTS at a Goring school have been showcasing their art and digital photography work in a special exhibition.

Year-10 and 11 GCSE course pupils at Chatsmore Catholic High School in Goring Street, Goring, made up the exhibition using preparatory and final pieces of their coursework. it consisted of 2d and 3d work in reponse to a variety of different stimuli.

Subject leader Caroline Woodward said: “The other students love to look around and it’s nice for the hard work of the art students to be shown as work usually stays in a portfolio. The students are amazed at the quantity they produce.

“We have around 50 art GCSE students, it’s a popular option. it’s important for everyone to do this and present their work in a professional arena.”

During the art course at the school, students mainly study 19th to 21st century artists to inspire them and to generate discussion, develop ideas and produced personalised pieces.

They use a variety of diffirent media to do so, including using a dedicated Apple Mac suite.

Student Yasmin Friend, 16, said: “It’s weird to see my work up, I’ve seen previous years doing this and I’m in their shoes now. I chose the O2 arena because of my interest in music and I find Antonio Gaudi’s work inspiring.”

While 16-year-old Celia McCarthy added: “It feels good to have it all displayed, I’m pleased to show it and it’s good to see it all put together. It shows how much work we’ve done.”
