Creative Arts Students Exhibit Artistic Prowess at Stamford Arts Centre

13 March 2024

Creative Arts students of Stamford College, part of Inspire Education Group (IEG), exhibited their artistic prowess at the Spring Exhibition, hosted by Stamford Arts Centre. We had the pleasure of speaking with several of these gifted students, as they showcased their work in the gallery of multidisciplinary installations of film, still image, art, fashion and graphic design.

Level 3 Photography and Video student, Katie Hammond, was delighted to have their work, ‘Landscape’, exhibited in the gallery. “I’m very proud. I’d spent a day shooting, and as soon as I began to print the photos off I thought, that’s ‘the one’”, Katie explained. Commending their experience of College, Katie shared, “I’ve learnt to always keep creative processes in mind. College has been great for team building and sharing ideas too, having met so many new people on my course”. Katie is excited to continue her education at the University of Lincoln, having accepted an offer to study BA (Hons) Photography.

“The support I’ve received from my tutors has shaped me”, Level 3 Photography and Video student, Will Foley, expressed. “If you’re thinking about studying a Creative Arts course, just go for it. I’ve learnt everything, from the basics up, and been inspired by so many new people”. Delving into the thoughts behind their creation titled, ‘A Last Goodbye’, Will shared, “It’s part of a wider piece of work I completed that explored moving house, moving on, and coming of age. It’s been really nice to see it displayed in a public space, and have people see it”. Will has an exciting future ahead, pursuing an offer to study BA (Hons) Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales.

Level 3 Photography and Video student, Sophie Hudson, has an unconditional offer to study BA (Hons) Fashion Photography at Nottingham Trent University. “Though we receive plenty of support in our learning, we get a lot of creative freedom too. I’ve developed so much experience in all art-related areas, giving me the confidence to pursue the university route”, they explained. Sophie did not name their striking artwork on display at the Arts Centre, but instead focused on making it look “as visually interesting as possible”. “I looked at the garment that the model was wearing, and noticed that within the material, there were similar shapes as in her hairstyle. I played around and made full use of the photography studio at College!”, Sophie shared. “It feels strange to see my work on display in a gallery, but I’m so grateful”.

The Spring Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre was testament to the exceptional talent of Stamford College’s Creative Arts students. Inspire Education Group wishes them the best of luck, as they embark on the next chapter of their academic and artistic journeys.
