FUTURE artists have shown off their creative talents at an annual celebration.
Year 11 pupils from William Allitt, in Sunnyside, Newhall, as well as their parents and friends of the school gathered at Sharpe’s Pottery Museum, Swadlincote to view the annual celebration of student artwork which featured a collection of imaginative final pieces. The exhibition was filled with a diverse range of portraiture, paintings, collage, fashion design and sculpture, and the school had a visit from Councillor Neil Atkin, vice chairman of South Derbyshire District Council, who was very impressed by the high level of artistic ability on display and wished all the pupils every success in their future.
A spokesman for the school said: “The exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talent and creativity that we have here at the William Allitt School. Students and parents treasure the opportunity to come and view the work in this charming setting. We would like to thank Sharpe’s Pottery for hosting the exhibition for the fourth consecutive year and look forward to working with them in August.”
The school will now select some of the best work to display at Sharpe’s Pottery throughout August in a four week exhibition in their lower gallery space.
