EXMOUTH Community College has again played host as it celebrated achievements of its up and coming artists.The college receives a grant which enables year 10 GCSE art students to have the chance to experience a day with a professional artist. The workshops, which run for a day, allow students to opt out of the college timetable and work with three professional artists in specialist areas including painting, printmaking and 3D. The students get an insight into how to make a living as an artist.They not only produce a work but they also then form a committee which organises an exhibition.Mayor Joy Whipps, Liz Lee, head of college governors, and College Principal, Mr Alexander each chose a favourite piece of work. They then presented a special award to the fortunate recipients.A spokesman commented: "Without the hard work put in by Jill Honour, head of key stage 4, and Terri Cooke, head of art at the college, and the rest of their team, the evening would not have been the success it was.
