Highview students’ work in the Folkestone Triennial 2011 education and outreach exhibition


The islands installation and the tunnel video were included in the exhibition at The Old Post Office @ Tontine Street in Folkestone. Works made by students from several local schools are presented at the Folkestone Triennial’s education space, which is also used as ‘making space’ where free art and craft activities for young people and families are run daily throughout the three months of the Folkestone Triennial.

This group continued to work on their islands project. They also started choosing materials for bridges that the students will make in order to connect all islands. Each island will be mounted on ‘legs’ and the whole archipelago will be moved to the space outside the art class room.

fantastic environment

The afternoon group started work on the installation made of images of imaginary landscapes and forests. As part of research they explored the school’s polytunnel and photographed different types of plants. Once siting outside they also made drawings of fantastic plants and creatures.
