8 Sept - 5 nov: Brecon Central: inspired by Brecon’s heritage - Brecon High School
Design and Print: inspired by Brecon
Brecon’s heritage is the inspiration for the artwork in this exhibition. Drawing ideas from the buildings of Brecon and the historic collections at y Gaer Museum and Gallery, pupils at Brecon High School explored creative processes and techniques to create new work.
Design Technology students in year 12 worked with designer Signe Lydersen to develop ideas for product prototypes from objects at y Gaer while Year 10 Art students responded to the built environment of Brecon town through drawing and lino-print processes with artist Jamie Tobin.
The display represents the creative journey of the pupils over the seven-week project, sharing the designs, testing, and experimenting with printing, and the creation of a final artworks.
The aim of the project is to develop the artwork into a series of products that will be sold at Theatr Brycheiniog, and at other shops in Brecon generating profits to support further collaborative projects with local artists and Brecon High School.
