Our Generation Strathaven
'Our Generation Strathaven' was an exhibition of artwork created by Strathaven Academy pupils. A selection of work by S1s was on display alongside photographs by pupils undertaking a National Progression Award in photography at the Hub from 14th-16th March 2020.
As the project progressed, there were many opportunities for experimentation. Pupils learnt about printmaking and created all of the prints on display. They also learnt more about observational drawing and were encouraged to play with scale, materials, and line.
The work by the S1s complimented the photographs by the NPA pupils. Each pupil had undertaken a personal project that expresses their interpretation of history and heritage.
The exhibition reflected Strathaven’s history and heritage but from the viewpoint of our community’s young people. Throughout the project, the pupils explored what history and heritage is to them, along with considering their place in the community’s and town’s futures.
