Culture inspires artwork
STUDENTS at a Dartmouth school have shown off their work inspired by Africa during a special open exhibition.
The artworks were created during a special Saturday workshop run by Dartmouth Academy's director of arts Nicola Perrott with artist and teacher Anna Uhr Delia.
The event aimed to increase the students' understanding of another culture and inspire them to create new art connected with it.
The works have now been put on display for a special exhibition which opened during a parents evening.

Parents, students and staff alike were amazed by the quality and vibrancy of the work.
Mrs Perrott said: "We have been seeing a high level of work from our Year 7s throughout this year, and this project is no different.
"We have seen such fantastic engagement from all the students in the subject, which we examined from lots of different angles.
"We use lots of different ways of examining subjects so the children have a good depth of knowledge which only serves to inspire them to produce even greater artwork. Well done to them."
Mrs Uhr Delia added: "This work shows how much confidence academy students have in their own abilities and how much they enjoy soaking up a new influence and using it in their artwork.
"We support their creative process so they can confidently apply what they have learned in an interesting and new way."
