Creative Arts Academy Launch and Formal Opening
Creative Arts Academy
Next Wednesday we will formally open our state of the art Performing Arts block with invited guests that include local schools, youth groups, councillors, the college governors and industry professionals. We are really looking forward to giving them all a tour of all our new facilities and showcase the incredible talents of our students, as part of the college's newly formed Creative Arts Academy.
It's already been a great start to the Academy with 100% pass rate for nine creative subjects at A2 for 2014- 2015. Therefore, we are celebrating this success by having a three day launch event for the Academy within the college for creative students.
This will involve students from some of our creative disciplines including Art & Design, Creative Writing, Media & Communication and Performing Arts. Several activities will be going on throughout the three days, including:
- Media students attempting to make a film within seven hours
- An eight hour radio broadcast
- Performances by our Performing Arts and Music students
- Written pieces inspired by creativity from our Creative Writing students
- Art created by our Photography, Fine Art, Textiles and Graphics students
Look out for more on what will be happening on Itchen's social media and the Creative Arts Academy webpage. It looks to be yet another exciting week at Itchen Sixth Form College!
