Students from Watford Grammar School for Girls devoted their official winter break to stage a full-scale exhibition of paintings and photographs in the gallery, where young members of the art department have already made a mark with guest appearances at the Watford Area Arts Forum’s summer and autumn shows.

This time, head of arts, Georgie Wheeler had accepted an invitation for students to “do their own thing” under the auspices of the Arts Forum.

“It was a great opportunity for the girls to experience what is involved in presenting a show and sharing their work with the public,” said Georgie, who did the hanging with the help of WAAF exhibition co-ordinator, David Latham.The show was opened by head of the school, Helen Hyde, who appeared to be as impressed and fascinated by the exhibits as visitors.

As well as overall impact, the show demanded attention and drew in the viewer by dramatic and innovative detail as well as skilfully executed often mould-breaking, individual ideas.
