'Art in the era of assessment'

Friday 28 February–Thursday 27 Mar 2014

Can students' artwork, produced for external assessment, retain true artistic integrity? Can their teachers, who are also art practitioners, perform both roles successfully? You can judge for yourself at an exhibition by students and teachers from William Morris Sixth FormVisual Arts department, on show from 28 February at Hammersmith’s Riverside Studios.

William Morris Sixth Form in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham was established in 1994 as the country’s first 16–19 school, catering for 16–19-year-old students from West London and beyond.

The school works in partnership with secondary schools in the borough and also offer places to a wide range of students from across London (the current students come from over 100 schools or colleges).

The Art Block is a purpose-built suite of studios where drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles, photography, ceramics, sculpture and art history are studied. It has been developed around an existing large general-purpose studio, with the addition of a digital photography suite and a ceramics/sculpture studio. All the studios are well resourced for courses in the various specialist art disciplines and have recently been upgraded to include access to a new Mac network. So visit the Riverside Studios to find out what has been produced by the William Morris Sixth Form students.
