Hector McDonnell inspires creativity at the RUA exhibition

On Wednesday 5th December the A2 Art and Design students attended the RUA exhibition at the Ulster Museum. 

The students had the opportunity to meet the esteemed artist Hector McDonnell and ask him questions about his work ‘Demonstration in Stuttgart Station’  currently exhibited at the RUA.  Hector McDonnell kindly shared stories about his work and advice on the many ways the students could approach their own practise. 

The students thoroughly enjoyed this experience and were inspired by his words to begin working on their own works of art.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Fun in the Art Department as we celebrate Belfast Fashion Week.

Taking inspiration from the designers of London, Paris and Japan, Victoria College Belfast's Year 10 art students worked together to create unique garments

The lesson culminated in a fun fashion show, where the pupils showcased their paper haute couture on our very own classroom catwalk, complete with Paparazzi to document and report on the unique style and flair of these up and coming new young designers.
