Students at the Peele Community College in Long Sutton showcased their GCSE art work to parents, teachers and peers on Thursday afternoon.

As well as showing the impressive fruits of their labours, the event was also the launch for the Peele’s online art gallery.

The exhibition displayed the art work of the Year 11 art students, representing two years of creative study and acknowledged their artistic achievements.

Head teacher Elizabeth Smith said: “The exhibition gives us the opportunity to showcase the originality and innovation which is unique to each of our students at The Peele.”

The art works are centred around the examination themes of ‘Eyes’, ‘Changed’ or ‘Interesting Characters’.

These broad concepts challenge the students to explore their personal interpretations of the society we live in and to find their voice to express the aspects of life that matter to them.

The art works show many students embracing this challenge, such as Emily Woods’ inspired portrayal of life and death, of youth and skeletons, creating an image of delicate pencil drawing and paint.
