Art students showcase talent at final show

University Centre Grimsby Art and Design students showcased their talents at the much-anticipated end of year degree show.

The show, which was held at the Institute’s new Grimsby School of Art, saw work on display from over 60 students and included everything from fine art and special effects to design and fashion.

Nineteen-year-old Chloe Carbis entitled her final project ‘Do Your Bit’ which was aimed at bridging the gap between the younger and older generations, she said: “I wanted to produce a piece of work that would be used to help communicate between the young and the elderly and bridge the gap between the generations.

“The course has allowed me to develop creatively and the tutors have been so supportive. I’ve really enjoyed my course and the new Arts Centre is great, I’d recommend it to anyone who is creative.”

Tim Rogers, Head of School for Creative Arts and Media, said: “The show was a culmination of three years’ hard work. “Some of the work on display is unbelievable and it’s great for the students to have the chance to celebrate what they have achieved.”

Aspiring designer, Stefan Georgiou, has completed his BA Creative and interactive design degree and is now looking for work.

Stefan said: “I started on a computer science course and there was an element of graphic design. I found myself enjoying the creative side of things and then I decided to do this course instead. It’s a huge relief to have finished all of my work and see it on display.”
