And design exhibition
Cathkin High School recently became an art gallery for a day.
Last Thursday, May 14, the Cambuslang school played host to an S2 art and design exhibition, which also featured work from Cathkin Community Nursery and Rutherglen High School.
It proved to be hugely popular with all who attended, and delighted both the youngsters, staff and the visitors who saw their work.
Head teacher Anne Marie McNair said: “Cathkin High School alongside Rutherglen High School and Cathkin Community Nursery presented an art and design exhibition on Thursday evening.
“S2 pupils and pre-school nursery children shared the street area in Cathkin, where over 200 pieces of work were exhibited.
“S4 Hospitality students provided a range of cakes and refreshments which were enjoyed by all.
“The young artists chose their most successful work from their years portfolio.
“Parents, carers, pupils, teachers and dignitaries attended the event which was a great success, visitors commented on the high standard and variety of works on show.
“Pupils enjoyed the opportunity to showcase their work within an exhibition space.
“The art and design teachers were thrilled with the event’s success and hope to include S1 work next year.”
One of those who attended was Cambuslang West Labour councillor Richard Tullett, who saw his daughter Emily’s art on show.
He said: “Everyone’s artwork was of such a high standard and it was great to see the hard work and dedication of all the pupils concerned.
“I am constantly encouraged by the creativity of our pupils locally and this exhibition is further evidence of that.”
