- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Having won an impressive total of seven first prizes at the regional Urdd Eisteddfod, Pembrokeshire College students have gone on to the national Eisteddfod final, achieving some impressive results.
Bilingual Champion, Lisa O’Connor enthused, “Pembrokeshire College has been competing in the Eisteddfod for just five years and we’re delighted with our results this year!”
College Interactive Media students swept the board in both age categories of the App Design competition with Camron Driscoll winning first place in the Under 19s category, Dominic Cunningham second and Shannon Buckley placed third. In the Under 25s category of the same competition, Sioned Harries came first, Joel Langston came second and Anne-Marie Roberts was placed third.
A-level Photography students continued to dominate the winners table with Holly Williams-Paris winning first prize for her Colour Print in the Under 19s category. William Brooks also secured first place for his Series of Monochrome Prints in the Under 19s category.
The jewel in the crown was Pembrokeshire College’s Cornerstone students securing first place with their beautiful 2D collage of birds, symbolising peace and celebrating diversity. Having collaborated with Welsh Fine Artist, Zara Juchi the Additional Learning Group (ALN) made individual birds on a board built up with acrylic paint to create interesting marks and different textures. Zara showed the group a technique of painting over covered areas before revealing bird shapes with leaves and branches underneath and finally adding touches of gold leaf.
Also in the ALN category, College Horizon student Corey Bates won second prize for his Individual 2D work with Emily Phillips placed third.
All of the work will be displayed on the Eisteddfod maes in Pencoed until 3rd June.
If you’re unable to make the Eisteddfod this year, then a visual art exhibition is also currently on display at Pembrokeshire College. Showcasing the work of BA(Hons) Design Studies students, a diverse range of subjects from fine art, textiles, graphics and printmaking will be on display until 1st June.
