Students from schools across Newham take part in a workshop exploring subjects through make up and props

Students from primary and secondary schools across Newham came together at the University of East London, with tutors and students from London College of Fashion, for a workshop exploring subjects through make up and props.

Michele Buchanan, Senior Outreach Manager at London College of Fashion said:

Thanks to UEL for welcoming us to their site, it is so positive to work together to promote the arts across the borough. The students got really excited and it was so lovely to see so many boys playing with make up and getting stuck in. The Newham art teachers put so much into this behind the scenes creating the best props for the shoot, a huge thanks to everyone involved.

The wonderful photographs created by the students will be used to promote the annual Art Matters exhibition at UEL. The show comprises works of art from Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Colleges within Newham with outreach connections to UAL.

The show is a celebration of the talent of students across Newham and celebrates the dedication of the Newham art teachers who are so passionate about the subject. London College of Fashion, is pleased to support the show and we look forward to welcoming students to our new Stratford site in the future.

Force of Nature – new exhibition at Mile End Art Pavilion

Last week a new exhibition called Force of Nature opened at The Art Pavilion in Mile End, curated by LCF Research Fellow James Putnam.

It aims to communicate an awareness of nature’s increasing fragility and some of the works on display are concerned with urgent issues of ecological and social sustainability.

Movement, light, birth, growth, ageing, decay and rebirth are among the energies or ‘forces’ that artists strive to capture in the exhibition. Using a diverse range of media including organic materials, they are continually searching and synthesising new ways to redefine our relationship with nature. The work from the 28 artists involved will be evocative, provocative or sublime, with some conveying an urgent environmental message.

The exhibition will be on display until 6 April 2017.
