Arts students at Diss Corn Hall pass with flying colours
Arts students at Diss Corn Hall passed with flying colours this month.
All 21 bronze and silver Arts Award candidates passed with what the moderator called the best portfolios she had seen in years.
The award aims to broaden the experiences of its students, as well as offering them transferable skills for the future.
Jessica Vincent, arts and heritage outreach manager at the venue, said: “Living in a rural area, there are not many opportunities for arts outside of school.”
The Arts Award, which the Corn Hall has run since 2012, helps students create artistic portfolios through a variety of workshops.
Jessica said: “It is really important that people express themselves. Everything we do is linked to the arts.’’
This term’s students, from across Diss and Long Stratton, were able to watch and review London-based Fat Rascal Theatre’s production of Tom and Bunny Save the World, as the theatre company visited Diss.
“It’s challenging but so rewarding,” added Jessica. “You get to meet new people and make lifelong friends.”
