A Level  Art & Design students will exhibit their work in two locations across the city during February half term.


Jennifer Eden, Art and Design tutor helped coordinate the event, she said: "After a very successful A Level show in  the summer it was clear that our students are creating really exceptional work. In some cases the work is already evident of degree level work. Student's ideas and the presentation of their conceptual investigations are worth a higher level of exposure than we have had before."

Work will feature a wide range of the platforms available to the students such as screen printing, latex, 2D and 3D work, photography, sculptures in plaster and ceramics and textiles.

Becky Hodgkinson, previously of Tadcaster Grammar School is creating a piece to represent 'Negative Space.' She said: "This unit is very interesting as I have not created a sculpture before. The tutors have been great and it doesn't matter that I haven't worked in this field as I can easily find a tutor who specialises in the area. They are very willing to help me overcome any difficulties."


Olivia Clarke, previously of St Peters School is contrasting fine art with textiles, said Olivia: "It is not the traditional way but the great facilities and knowledge the tutors have allow me to bridge gaps between the art platforms.


Victoria Colquhoun-Postill previously attended Easingwold School. She came to York College because of the facilities and the opportunities the College could give her. She said: "This whole project has been about pushing myself and stretching my limits. It's a great opportunity to be able to get the public's views and opinions. If someone likes my work and would like to display it in their home, I feel proud. I wouldn't have been able to have these opportunities at sixth form."


 Lenny Zachariou previously of Woldgate College works with latex, animal sculls and foliage.


A Level Photography work is on display at Café 68, Gillygate from 13th - 28th February
A Level Fine Art and Textiles work is on display at the Blossom Street Gallery from 13th - 24th February
