Work by Fife Supported Programmes students is about to go on show at the FifeSpace Gallery in Rothes Halls.
The students, who undertake creative work as part of their Supported Programmes college courses at Fife College’s Glenrothes Campus and who all have additional support needs, have produced work in a wide range of media including sculpture, printmaking, drawing and painting, with themes ranging from daydreams to the animal world.
Lecturer Gayle Nelson said: “Expressing themselves creatively and learning new skills is so important to our students. Through art they make choices, discover things they are good at, and gain a sense of achievement in what they have made.
“Our students are so excited to be showing their work to the public, their friends and families and we are very grateful to OnFife for this opportunity.”
The FifeSpace Gallery, which was recently upgraded with new lighting to make it one of the best contemporary gallery spaces in the kingdom, has returned from the pandemic with an exciting schedule of exhibitions over the coming months.
The student exhibition, Starry Nights, opens with a private viewing on Friday 6 May, and runs until Thursday 26 May and is open to the public Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.
