In response to the art trip to St. Ives during half term, Year 12 students were tasked with independently creating three pieces of art. As well as creating the work, they were also required to set the show and instruct staff on how the work should be displayed - all of which was a good experience of independent learning. The Jong Art Group Exhibition is now available to view in the art department.
