The Creative Industries make a significant impact on Scotland’s economic and cultural wellbeing, it’s the fastest growing sector and depends on individual creativity, talent, and skills.
To ensure that our students leave us in the best position possible to make a positive contribution to the industry, our courses place a strong emphasis on practical projects to help develop their skillsets.
This is done through creatively responding to challenging briefs throughout the course; sharing ideas, experimenting, and problem solving as well as using tried and tested techniques.
Over the course of the year, this leads to a lot of incredibly high quality work being produced across all of our courses and subject areas, including Art and Design, Creative Media, Furniture, Jewellery, Interior Design, and Photography.
This work is showcased annually at a range of individual Creative Showcases and Exhibitions throughout Fife. And, over the last few weeks, this year's events have taken place.
Director: Creative Industries, Dougi McMillan, was delighted with the success of this year’s events, and the quality of the students’ work. He said: “These exhibitions are one of my favourite parts of the year. They are a fantastic – and well deserved – opportunity for our talented students to showcase their skill and creativity to their friends and family, as well as members of the public.
"If you have the chance, come along to a showcase or exhibition and see for yourself!”
There will be a Jewellery Exhibition at the Byre Theatre, St Andrews, on Monday, 11 June. Go along if you can and support the students!
You can see examples of the work on show so far this year on on our Facebook page.
