Upcoming Events

An exhibition of Homewood Students AS & A level Graphic Design work.

On Wednesday June 22nd Homewood held the fifth annual exhibition of AS and A level Graphic Design work. As always the occasion was a huge success and a fantastic opportunity for students and their families, along with school staff and other guests, to celebrate the outstanding work produced by students studying Graphic Design in year 11, 12 and 13 at Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre.

As always there was a very broad range of styles, influences, processes and media used by our students including photography, laser-cutting, photo-montage, digital manipulation, typography and illustration, just to name a few. Students responded in a personal and creative manner to a range of different themes and stimuli set by their teachers including Reaction, Edge, Power and Truth.

The high standard of work achieved by Graphics students at Homewood is nothing new and this year was definitely no exception with several visitors and guests who attended stating that the work exhibited was at least as good as much of the degree level work they had seen at higher education shows they had visited in recent weeks.

One new aspect to this years exhibition was the inclusion of work produced by Homewood’s Graphic Design Alumni. A group of 10+ past students who are now either studying creative subjects in higher education or are working in the creative industries. These students were all taught by either Mr Davies (Coordinator of Graphic Design) or Mr Spurr during the past 10 years and have each maintained regular contact with them since leaving the school. We hope that our current students will be inspired by the success achieved by our alumni and gain a better understanding of how their current effort and progress could lead to continued success at higher education and beyond.

Once again our year 13 students were very successful in their applications to higher education institutions across the country with many going on to study art & design at Foundation level or Graphic Design at degree level.

As with the last four years of exhibitions the work displayed by students this year will be published in the form of a hardback book entitled That Graphics Stuff 2016 and will be available to order on-line very soon. If you wish to purchase a copy then please contact Mr Davies directly on m.davies@homewood.kent.sch.uk
