Oxford & Cherwell Valley College students show their skills at Artweeks

Creative arts students at Oxford & Cherwell Valley College (OCVC) are preparing to show design and craft skills at the 30th anniversary Oxfordshire Artweeks.

Around 1,000 artists, including 180 new for 2012, are preparing to open almost 500 venues across Oxfordshire from May 5 to Sunday May 27 for the week.

OCVC’s Helen Amber, Creative Arts Oxford, programme manager said: “I think this is a great opportunity for our students to exhibit their work and show their diverse skills and creative potential.”
Art foundation student Alison Jones said: “This will be my first show and it is both exciting and nerve-racking.

“My work is about messages and communication – from hand written postcards to social networks, and explores the impact they can have.”
