The 2012 Exhibition of work by Foundation Diploma in Art and Design students at Kingston College was outstanding, demonstrating the continuing high quality of the learning and teaching on this course.
It is also evident, from the list of the Higher Education student destinations displayed in the exhibition, that every student has been encouraged, supported and given confidence in their work to pursue independence and originality in a wide range of subjects including, 3D Design, Photography, Graphic Design, Animation, Illustration, Painting, Sculpture, Theatre Set and Fashion.
Every piece of student work was highly individual and the acquisition of knowledge, skills and understanding were clearly evident. Divine Francisco’s three-dimensional typographic illustration depicting the frustrations suffered by dyslexics was a distinctive submission. Phil Read created exquisite illustrations for ‘The Hunting of the Snark’ by Lewis Carroll.
Visitors to the Exhibition were clearly impressed and said so. One lady commented: “Please pass on my congratulations to all the students; the exhibition is excellent, and is the result of great teaching.”
Judy Dibiase, Course Leader, said: “The course begins each year with the 10 week Exploratory Stage - life drawing, studio projects, workshop sessions, historical and critical studies plus external visits and 1 to 1 assessments, which set a solid foundation for the following Pathway and Confirmatory Stages of the Course. Students are well supported at Kingston College and respond accordingly. I am absolutely delighted by the success of our students; this year 33% of our students gained Distinction Grades.”
