Design Students Host Inspirational ‘Sketchibition’

Kensington and Chelsea College design student

Kensington and Chelsea College’s design students took inspiration from the British Museum for their latest exhibition.

More than 100 students took a trip down to the iconic London venue to spend the day filling in their sketchbooks with drawings of things that inspired them at the museum.

Their collection of unique drawings can now be viewed in a special exhibition on the 3rd Floor corridor running from Wednesday 30th January at the college’s Wornington Centre, Wornington Road. A Private View is being held for the event on Tuesday 29th January from 3.45-5pm where guests can meet exhibiting students and speak to them about their work.

Lisa Marklew, Head of Design at the College said: ‘This Design Department wide activity has given students a great opportunity to get to know learners on other courses, and practice their research and observational drawing skills too.’

Kensington and Chelsea College has a reputation for excellence in Art and Design, and recently became an associate college member for The National Skills Academy for Creative & Cultural – a status awarded to only a select number of colleges.

The college is also partnered with many of London’s iconic creative and cultural venues including the V&A, the National Portrait Gallery, the Science Museum, the Royal Opera House, Hampton Court Palace and the Tower of London through its successful range of apprenticeship programmes.
