This is an exhibition which brings together a collection of paintings, drawings, photography and 3-D sculptures based on the theme 'Elements'. It sets out to explore a range of ideas: from the renaissance to post modernism with a particular focus on youth culture. What makes this exhibition unique is the artists are 17 and 18 years old and are keen to join creative industries in the future. Some are planning to go on to arts based degrees, others directly into industry. QPCS Is an Arts Mark Gold school and prides itself on developing exciting opportunities for our students to display their work. We have worked closely with Artisan for the last five years. This has given our young artists the confidence to develop their skills as curators and enabled their work to reach a broader market early on in their creative careers.
