ART students used creativity to explore themes like decay, music, the environment and marketing as part of a new exhibition.

BTEC Art and design students from Blackpool Sixth Form launched the show, called Out Of The Frame at the Kiln House Gallery, Marsh Mill, Thornton on Friday.

The exhibition was organised by students and saw them step out of the Sixth Form’s art studio – called The Frame – to present their work to the public.

The group of 12 BTEC students were each given a section of the gallery to showcase their work.

And the finished exhibition certainly displayed the wide variety of artistic skills at the Blackpool Old Road college.

From pictures of animals stitched on to plastic carrier bags, photography capturing moving images, and a critical look at corporate branding, many different mediums were explored.

Two wedding dresses designed with Ophelia from Hamlet and Miss Havisham from Great Expectations in mind also created an eye catching display.

Lindsay Chapman, art tutor said: “The launch night was a great success, we had about 60 people attend and two students even sold their work.

“This is the first time we’ve asked students to organise an exhibition of campus as part of their work.

“They had to arrange the venue and sort out marketing and promotional materials.

“The standard of the work was very high, they did a great job.” The exhibition can be viewed free of charge this weekend.
