WM College Open & Lowes Dickinson Show 2022

The WM College Art Department is very proud to present our annual ‘Open Exhibition’.

Exhibits have been created by learners studying on our wide range of Visual Arts courses at the college and we hope you will see this reflected in the wonderfully diverse works on display. In addition to their work being displayed, the learner submissions are also judged in a range of categories for the Lowes Dickinson Prizes, this is an art bursary instituted in 1910 by one of our founders.

We hope you enjoy the work and will be inspired to visit us at the Ruskin Gallery at
our Crowndale Road site.

Arts Level 2 Accredited Courses

Welcome to our Arts Level 2 End of Year exhibition.

Due to the pandemic, this year is the first time since 2019 that our Level 2 groups have been able to work in the studios for their entire course and we have been delighted by the results. The standard of work is so high, dynamic, and varied and it is evident how hard our learners and tutors have worked. We wish all our learners well in their future studies at the college and those progressing to higher study and employment.

Review the work online here and you can see the physical work displayed at our Crowndale Site until the 27th July. Displays are at the end of the 3rd floor, and on the 5th floor too, so do come along and take a look. 

If you are interested in a career change or starting your journey to study the arts at a higher level, our Creative Arts Level 1 courses start in September in: Ceramics, Jewellery, Illustration, Fashion, Music, Acting and Drama and Film & Video so there is plenty to choose from. Take a look at our website to see what’s available, to book an assessment Apply online.

The Journey 2022

The first show of 2022 at the 5th floor gallery was ‘The Journey’
and was open to learners and staff.

It explored the process of research, analysis and discovery, essentially ‘The Journey’
that leads to the final work. We want to celebrate this, often unseen, process by showcasing sketchbooks, research journals, technical tests and maquettes.

WM College Mind, Body & Spirit Show 2021

Artworks have been created by learners studying on our wide range of courses at the college, our staff, and external exhibitors – invited to submit work for the first time.

WM College Staff Show 2020

Welcome to the Annual WM College Staff Show. This year we are exhibiting online and preparing a physical show of work in the Ruskin Gallery on our Crowndale Road site. As you will see, lockdown has not inhibited the creativity of our staff, indeed quite the contrary. Kitchen tables and spare rooms at home have served as make-shift studios for some, so we thought it would be interesting to share images of the environments these works were created in.
As we start to welcome new and returning learners back to college, I hope the staff work exhibited will inspire them to make, create, engage with learning and turn small areas of their home into mini studios.
Enjoy!
Lisa Marklew, Director of Learning for Arts & Vocational Skills.

Arts Level 1 & 2 Accredited Courses

Welcome to our Arts Level 1 and 2 End of Year exhibition.

Lockdown commenced mid-way through most of these courses, so I have been really pleased to see our learners demonstrating resilience, continuing to engage with learning and creativity during these unusual and unprecedented times. The wide range of quality work produced shows innovation and responsiveness to the change of environment and makes me very proud.

We hope our online show means that more friends and family will be able ‘visit’ and celebrate the wonderful achievements of our learners. Our Level 1 and 2 courses take place in a range of subjects including Fashion, Film, Ceramics, Painting & Drawing and, new for 20-21, Photography.

If you are interested in a career change, or starting your journey to study at a higher level, take a look at our website to see what’s available and book an assessment.
