Artists Open House 2017

A treat for the senses at Varndean School's Open House.

Ceramics, paintings, textiles, graphics and resistant materials all came together in Varndean School's Artists Open House exhibition on Saturday 20th May 2017. Final exam pieces and supporting work in sketch books and folders were appreciatively poured over by visitors exploring the Fiveways trail of Brighton's AOH festival. 

Excellent and an inspiration.

As well as the beautiful artwork there were also music and drama performances to watch along with tasty treats to devour in the parent and student run cafe. VCert Food Preparation and Nutrition students sold homemade soups with their own freshly bread and sausage rolls. 

The ceramics blew my mind!! My children were sooooo inspired.

Wall hangings

Months of hard work and dedication has gone into these pieces and with this being the first exhibition of their work for many students, it's certainly one to remember and be proud of.

Love all the different art. Individual. How can it be graded?

VSIP-Zambia artwork on sale

Artwork supporting the Russell School charity this year, VSIP-Zambia, was also on sale at the exhibition and attracted alot of interest. Their online shop is now open.

Every year the standard keeps getting higher. Very proud of all the Varndean students who have worked so hard.
