Clever Students Are Unmasked; Exhibitions: From Ceramic Masks to Computer Generated Water and Newspaper Pictures


Byline: Karen McLauchlan

ANCIENT Egypt and the Far East are some of the influences reflected in a fascinating range of ceramic masks which have gone on display at Hartlepool Art Gallery.

The twelve masks have been created by a dozen Year 11 students at the town's English Martyrs School and Sixth Form College as part of a new two-year Creative and Media Diploma course. The diploma offers a mixture of classroom learning, creative thinking and hands-on experience to help students develop the skills and experience employers and universities value.

Called Artefact, the maskmaking project involved visiting the art gallery several times during September and October to meet Hartlepool Council's Cultural Services staff and to seek inspiration from items held in the town's collection.

Having chosen masks as their subject, the students were able to see masks from several different periods in history, including from the days of the pharaohs.

They then each developed their own designs, first producing trial pieces - called maquettes - in air-drying clay and then refining and developing their creations in real clay which they then glazed and fired.

Mike Brogan, artist in residence at the art gallery, oversaw the maquette-making stage of the project while the students were at the gallery. The youngsters then worked at English Martyrs with their diploma teacher Jeremy Gribben, the school's director of arts specialism, to make the masks which are now on display in the gallery.

Mike says: "They have produced a very high standard of work. They have really been inspired and the quality of their creations is excellent."

The exhibition runs until Saturday, January 22.

Entry to the gallery in Church Square which is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am-5pm is free.
