Showcasing the artistic talents of 15 Year 13 students who are currently completing their International Baccalaureate Diplomas. The Times finds out more about this annual creative show
Royal Victoria Place (RVP) has opened its doors to Tonbridge Grammar School’s Visual Arts Exhibition, providing a former retail unit to showcase the artistic talents of 15 Year 13 students who are currently completing their International Baccalaureate Diplomas.
Located on the first floor, the exhibition includes fine art, perspective drawings and watercolour paintings, as well as sculptures and pottery for the local Tunbridge Wells community to enjoy.
“Running until Wednesday May 4, visitors to the RVP can be enthralled and inspired by the host of material created by the students, which capture their personal interests and the wider world around them,” a spokesperson for British Land who own the RVP told the Times.
Guided through a series of taught workshops, each student has explored individual ideas which have been inspired by personally chosen artwork and artefacts, with the aim to help them develop their creative expression and analytical thinking.
Often, those who complete the International Baccalaureate Diploma go on to study visual arts in higher education.
Nicky Blanchard, centre manager at Royal Victoria Place, added: “We’re delighted to be able to host the Visual Arts Exhibition and provide a space for the students of Tonbridge Grammar to show off their artistic talents.
“The work they’ve produced is truly unique and will no doubt inspire the local community to get creative.”
The Visual Arts Exhibition is open seven days a week at Royal Victoria Place from 9.00am – 6.00pm Monday to Saturday, and 10.30am – 4.30pm on Sundays.
