Secondary virtual exhibition: the King’s InterHigh Art Show 2022
From June 27th to July 3rd, we at King’s InterHigh are celebrating our 2022 Summer Arts Festival — an exciting time for families and teachers to come together and highlight the incredible skill, talent, and creativity of our students all around the world.
Part of this festival is our Art Show 2022 virtual exhibition, where we’re showcasing the amazing fine, modern, and digital art pieces our learners have created over the past year. Want to see some of the highlights? Keep scrolling!
Let’s take a look at some exemplary work our Key Stage 4 Secondary learners (aged 14 to 16) have produced on their City & Guilds assured arts courses.
Art & Design in Action
One of the themes our students have explored in Art & Design in Action this year is ‘Futurescapes: Reimagining the urban landscape through illustration’. Researching various artists before creating their own works, learners produced a research presentation, essay, and portfolio of experiments around topic of future urban life. For their final piece of the module, our Key Stage 4 students had to put their exploration to use and create an original and unique response.

On the assured course in Photography Perspectives, students explored photomanipulation as part of the ‘Truth and Lies’ module. After researching photographers’ use of digital and hand manipulation, visual illusion, and deception, they created personal responses using a variety of editing techniques, apps, and softwares.
Student showcase: Maisie Pocock
Maisie’s reflection: “My [idea] is to show perfection and beauty expectations are placed on society. By showing these expectations it has a huge impact on individuals and creates huge pressure on people to be perfect, but this can have devastating effects… Throughout this project I wanted to keep the truth and lies contextual links which I feel has been portrayed throughout the images I have taken. I feel there is always a truth and lie in every photograph taken but by creating this in an actual image be it though layering, editing or just the image itself has worked and can easily be seen. Self-care is so important in life.“
