SHOPPERS visiting the Kingfisher Centre have a fabulous opportunity to see the creative talents of students at Trinity High School at a pop-up gallery in Walford Walk.
Showcasing the exam work of youngsters from Year 9 through to Year 13 the arts on show run from poetry, to photography, arts and crafts with even jewellery work and iron work on display.
One of the students whose work is on display is 15 year old Fatima Cengiz, who, inspired by the vibrant and colourful work of French artist Francoise Nielly, created her own piece on the theme of identity.
“I feel you cannot know a face until you see the eyes and so I used a magnifying glass to really emphasise the idea of identity,” she said.
Head teacher Adrian Ward said: “We are really proud to be able to showcase the talents of our students and I’m very grateful to the Kingfisher Shopping Centre for allowing us to do this.
“I think it is very important for the community to see what we do in school, and as it’s difficult for the community sometimes to come into school, it’s right that we should go out into the community.
“It’s also particularly important to emphasise the arts as we are in a time when the they coming under a lot of pressure, and we are very proud of the arts in our school.”
The exhibition closes on Friday.
