Stories Unfolding Exhibition

We kicked off the New Year with a fantastic exhibition of 2nd Year Illustration work. Students engaged with individuals and organisations for a ten-week Reportage project, taking on the role of investigators and the result is some really interesting work. The exhibition is on until 25th Jan and is well worth a visit!

XMAS Print Fair update

Thanks to all those who attended and took part in our XMAS Print Fair - the first of many, judging by the popularity of the event! It was a great day and really useful for students to get a taste of self publishing and developing their professional practice before graduating.

We're already looking forward to snapping up some more bargains at the next one! You can see some of the fantastic work students produced for the fair below.

Internships at Pratt Contemporary Printmaking Studio

Two of our third year students were lucky enough to be selected for internships at the illustrious Pratt Contemporary Printmaking Studio based in Kent. Pratt has specialised in Fine Art Print and Folio Editions since it started in 1977. Illustration students Callum Jackson and Ian O'Shea worked at the studio last summer, experiencing many of the practical aspects of preparing artwork, setting up exhibitions, marketing and promotion. The gallery Directors were so impressed by our students, they offered them both extended internships and invited them to take a show to the New York Print Fair in October!
