Art Exhibition 2019
A highlight of each year as an art teacher is the annual exhibition. Housed in TOLC the exhibition showcases work from GCSE, BTEC and A-Level students.
It is a chance for students, teachers and invited guests to see the results of the hundreds of hours of observation, recording, development and creative thinking our young artists engage in; many of whom go on to study on art courses at university prior to entering careers in the creative industries – one of the UK’s largest employers.
This year the show boasted a breadth of work that was diverse in both form and concept. From portraits, to sculptures, to photography, to graphic design, to architecture, the talents the KHS showcased is breathtaking. A senior citizen commented that ''this is the best show I have ever seen, they are so talented''
For the parents, senior citizens and the students who came to see their own work on display this event was a celebration of the effort, rigour, risk-taking and confidence that was evident in every piece.
Kingsbury High School has a proud history of inspiring and developing successful artists, designers, musicians and performers. Whether our graduates continue with a path into the arts or not, the learning that underpins such great success in these subjects provides our leavers with a skill set that is transferable and applicable in any area of their professional or personal lives, and long may it continue.
