Students at Kirkland High School have put their creativity to good use for a unique exhibition at the Methil Heritage Centre.

The exhibition, entitled ‘Colour Mania’ was unveiled earlier this month at the popular visitor attraction.

The show displays 2D and 3D work by Kirkland High School pupils from S1 to S6 as well as work from students at the Community College.

It features paintings, drawings and photographs as well as a number of crafts, including hand-made pigs, and alternative fashions such as corsets, headwear, shoes and jewellery.

The exhibition is an annual collaboration for the school and the centre, and is now in it’s 15th year.

Graham Ritchie from Methil Heritage Centre said they are more than happy to feature the exhibition as part of their program of events.

“It’s very colourful, and is colour co-ordinated, starting at white and going right through the spectrum to purple,” said Graham. “Some of the works are impressive.”

Ronnie Ross, headteacher at Kirkland High School, thanked the centre for all of its support, adding: “The work on display from our excellent Art and Design Department is simply outstanding and it would be great if people managed to get down to see it displayed in this way. It is genuinely a privilege for me to work with such devoted, creative and talented people.”

‘Colour Mania’ runs until January 25, 2014. The Centre is open Tues - Thurs, 11.00a.m. - 4.30p.m. and Sat 1.00 - 4.00p.m.
