Year 11 and 13 students from Bolton School Boys' and Girls'
Division have been showing their art work at the Best of Bolton Art
and Design Showcase, hosted by the University of Bolton.
The exhibition was held in the Innovation Factory of the School
of Arts, Media and Education at the University, and featured the
best work from pupils from Secondary Schools across the Borough.
The exhibition is sponsored by NADFAS who provided sponsorship for
six prizes which were presented at the private view evening. Bolton
School Year 13 pupil Claire Manley won the Best Fine Art prize.
Head of Art in the Girls' Division, Miss Fazackerly, has been
involved in organising the event for several years, along with the
Fine Art department at Bolton University. She said:"I am thrilled
that the event was so well attended by teachers, parents and
students on the night and the work is of an exceptionally high
standard. This just demonstrates what a wealth of artistic talent
there is across the borough of Bolton. Claire Manley thoroughly
deserves the fine art prize for her excellent piece based on
portraiture and Modern Graphic design."
Head of Fine Art at Bolton University, Alan Buckingham, said:
"It was a terrific evening, and it went really well - it is so good
to see all that talent and hard work by all the schools on show
The Best of Bolton School's Art and Design Showcase is open to
the Public from Wednesday 27th June to Friday 29th June 10am to 4pm
at the Innovation Factory Fine Art Studio on the University
