Bolton Sixth Form students' art on display in Crompton Place shopping centre
PHOTOGRAPHY and artwork has gone on display at a shopping centre — to promote a college’s state-of-the art facilities.
Bolton Sixth Form College is showcasing its students’ work in the Crompton Place in an attempt to recruit more talent to its town centre campus.
Course tutor Gillian Vipond said: “The whole idea came about when we were thinking of different ways to try and promote ourselves as an art and design department, and let people know of all the new facilities we now offer.
“We were offered some free window space at the shopping centre and thought it would be a great place to display the good work our students do to showcase the courses we offer.
“We now have dark and wet room facilities for budding photographers, as well as teaching digital techniques, which sets us apart from the rest.
“Students can also create work in 3D and get involved in more vocational work and trips abroad.”
Students currently aiming towards a BTEC Level 3 extended diploma in Art and Design and A level Photography, Textile and Graphic Design and Fine Art have this week become the first to see their work on show.
Crompton Place Manager, Malcolm Angus, said: “We are really happy to be supporting young people in Bolton.”
