Expressive Art from VPC to be exhibited at the CAOS Festival

By Adrian Notter - March 19th, 2018 | Posted in News

Students at the Vocational Progression Centre have been taking part in expressive art sessions. Teacher Gemma Collins encourages students to use a range of unique materials and innovative techniques to create some stunning pieces of art.

The artwork featured above was made by a student who poured the paint directly out of the bottles and then formed the patterns using a broken wooden paintbrush. He worked very fast and enjoyed the repetitive sounds the wooden brush handle made against the canvas.

Other methods students have used include pulling string through paint, using a fly swat to splatter paint and blowing glitter paint down a canvas.

Gemma commented: “This art project truly captures the students’ creative abilities and enables them to express themselves independently.”

If you would like to see the artwork, it is being exhibited at a new exciting community festival – CAOSart18 on 1st July 2018 in Carshalton.
