ARTISTIC students showed their entrepreneurial skills when they organised their own exhibition in an art gallery.

The group from Bromley College staged the show at Art Style, The Walnuts, Orpington, after fundraising to help pay for some of the rental expenses.

And they worked with the owners to make sure their work was displayed professionally.

The exhibition gave the second year BTEC art and design students experience in the way art is marketed and sold, plus the insight into how their work is perceived by the public.

Course leader Dana Pinto said: “The project was a little mini business with the students displaying their entrepreneurial spirit.

“They all used their own creativity to gain something beyond their education.”
