Exhibition Gallery

Student Examples

In this section you will find slideshows of students' exhibition photos with texts and extracts from their Curatorial Rationale.

For each student represented a selection of studio work is shown, not the entire submission in most cases.

This gallery is growing and expanding as teachers share their students work after assessment. If you have an interesting, unusual or exciting student exhibition you would like to showcase here, please do! Teachers love to see what other schools are getting up to. I am especially looking for some good examples of SL student exhibitions. Go to Contributing Student Work to the Gallery
