The English School Fahaheel Upper and Middle school Art and Dance students took center stage on the 25th April 2018 in what can be described as an artistic extravaganza displaying Art and Textile Design at ESF.

One of the highlights of the show was when Firas Zedan, a year 12 AS Fine Art student -who recently received acceptance and a $27,000 dollar scholarship to study at Parsons School of Design in New York, the No.1 Fashion University in the world- showcased his collection entitled, ‘Graffiti’. Firas’s work displayed his signature style with astounding flair for colours, and artistic expressions. To complete his collection and end the show, Robert Hao, Deputy Head boy performed a solo by Amy Winehouse, ‘Back to Black’.

The show opened with a Morris stick dance, Lads A Bunchum, by year 6 boys and girls who were dressed in white, black and red. This was later followed by a contemporary dance extract from ‘West Side Story’, by year 6 girls. Dance teacher/ choreographer, Mrs. Kippie was delighted with their performances.

Year 5 students, under the guidance of their Art teacher, Mrs. Stow, designed and hand stitched their own waistcoats. These included brightly coloured hand made appliqué, fabric paint and bead work. The girls’ designs were gracefully modeled by students in year 7.

Year 10 GCSE Art students pulled out all the stops displaying wearable art pieces which they had designed, painted/ printed and stitched, as part of their ongoing project. Students also displayed their work on the walls of the hall which created an artistic ambiance.

The collaboration between Middle and Upper School Art teachers and students was a great success and the School Management would like to thank all involved.
