Students use imagination

Chichester College students bring together a wide range of artworks for a one-day show entitled Imagine.

Monday, June 20 is the start date for The Chichester College Access to HE Diploma Art & Design students’ end-of-year show.

Student Lou Rapley said: “The collaborative exhibition will include paintings, sculptures and installations; textiles, etchings and prints; and photographic and digital work.”

Lou promised a fascinating show reflecting the students’ varied and rich life experiences.

“The Art and Design Access programme is specifically tailored for mature students wishing to return to education. From circus performer to yacht master, the students’ diverse backgrounds have enriched and inspired some very imaginative and distinctive pieces.

“Many of us are now going on to university, and this show is an opportunity to acknowledge that this is where it started!”

Student Lesley Blakelock said: “This show is about us, the students, who we are, and where we are going.”

The exhibition will be held in the foyer and mezzanine level of E Block at Chichester College, Westgate Fields, Chichester ( The private view is on Monday, June 20, and the exhibition will run until June 24, from 10am to 5pm.
