Students’ artwork unveiled as part of Tiverton Town Centre Enhancement Scheme
A piece of artwork that is part of the Tiverton Town Centre Enhancement Scheme, has been unveiled in the ally leading to the Pannier Market from Fore Street.
For many years there has been an empty space on the wall in the ally alongside an original (but since digitally enhanced) piece of artwork by the late Harry Tidball. The ‘blank canvas’ has now been filled by a piece of community art created by year 11 students from Tiverton High School.
As part of their BTEC qualification, the students were asked to design and create a piece which reflected the sights and atmosphere of the Pannier Market. The students went to the market for a morning of drawing and taking photos, working with the market traders. They then edited the drawings and photos on Photoshop (computer software) to produce the final piece.
The Enhancement Project commenced with works at Lowman Green and Gold Street and has included a Town Trail and Merchants Trail in Westexe, with information boards and pavement medallions to follow, refurbished and painted street furniture and signs and replacement litter bins.
