Petroc Showcases Creative Talent at Yes Art Show
On 7 June, our talented students presented the Yes Art Show.
The viewing featured artwork created by students from A Level Art; Level 2 and Level 3 Art, Design and Media; BA (Hons) Creative Industries; FdA Illustration; and Access to HE Diploma in Art & Design.
The show had a wonderful turnout and had a real festival atmosphere, with live music from our students and food and drinks trucks.
Foundation Degree Illustration student Sarah Lee-Pettifer created some really impressive illustrations that came to life once scanning your phone over them. Sarah said: “The thing that I most enjoy about studying at Petroc is the freedom to express your art with wonderful lecturers to guide you. I honestly couldn’t thank Amy enough. I have done lots of different art works for many different companies already throughout my studies. When I leave Petroc, my plan is to become a famous illustrator. Long term would be to have a job within animation as I have learnt that I absolutely love it!”
Our Dance students performed a beautiful piece. Visitor Fiona said: “The whole show was amazing, the work of the hugely talented creative industries students at Petroc is out of this world! I was lucky enough to watch a dance performance which was so beautiful and mesmerizing, it reduced the whole audience to tears! And the snippet we saw of Romeo and Juliet was fantastic – I’ll definitely be going to watch the show at the theatre!”
Media students also demonstrated their talents by showcasing their final films throughout the night.
Faculty Manager for Arts and Creative Industries, Ian Brennan, said: “I would like to congratulate all of our creative learners for their contribution to this phenomenal show. It was amazing to celebrate these achievements and to see so many friends, families and members of our community. Everyone I met was so impressed by the depth and quality of everything they saw, watched and heard. Thank you to the people of North Devon for their valued support in keeping the Arts at the heart of our community.”
