After the school excellent performance of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, I was once again inspired by an event held by Dubai College. Last night I went to see their Art and Design & Technology Exhibition.
A display of fine art pieces and creative product designs by the GCSE and A level students is a credit, not only to the school faculty, but also and especially to the young students who showed such flair and creativity in their displays.
I am always inspired by great creativity, and I love to see how young free unincumbered minds work. Here, the students were allowed to put together their own works without too much constraint and the results are a tribute to a bright new generation of talent. There were sculptures, watercolours, photography and many more expressions of art using a variety of media, and the design and technology exhibits were a clear sign of the students thinking out of the box on how to make better products.
I am passionate about design and creativity and originality, and what is so wonderful about seeing exhibitions like this is that there is no shortage of new ideas. No matter how much time has passed in history, the human mind is unique and will continue to find new and interesting ways to express itself.
Well done boys and girls. Whoever said "everything that can be invented has been invented" clearly didn't see the ability of our youth ... yesterday, today and tomorrow
