Summer Show 2018 | The Northern School of Art Middlesbrough
The final annual summer show as The Northern School of Art (CCAD) at the institutions campus in Middlesbrough has once again celebrated the future generation of artists and designers with students now going to employment and prestigious higher education institutions.
Putting their talents in the spotlight, over 300 students showcased their works from a wide range of courses at the summer exhibition including fashion, photography, 3D design, fine art and design crafts.
As the name of the institution will change to The Northern School of Art in September 2018, this is the final cohort of leavers who will have The Northern School of Art on their certificates; a name which originated 39 years ago.
Here are a selection of the students who are exhibiting this year:

Joas Izurieta – A-Levels
Joas has finished A-Levels with us and will be progressing on to study Foundation Diploma with us in September 2018. Joas’ final major project was dedicated to his mum after what had been a difficult time for his family. His work is beautiful and really shows the love a son has for his hard-working, devoted mother. We are sure Joas’ mum is as proud of his work as his The Northern School of Art family are.
Holly Speakman – A-Levels
Holly, who previously studied at Stokesley School will be studying Foundation Diploma with us in September 2018. Holly is an example of a fantastic The Northern School of Art student; a good friend to others who is always supportive and helpful. She has a ‘can-do’ approach and a positive attitude. Always organised and focused, Holly is highly talented and this is manifested in her work. The concepts behind her final exam work are beautifully expressed and executed.
Eve Jones – UAL Extended Diploma in Graphic Design

Eve received high praise indeed from her tutors during the show as they said that ‘she has worked extremely hard to become one of the most proficient and creative designers in the college. She is exceptionally driven and through her final major project has produced work of a professional industry standard’. Eve’s holiday brochure project is aimed at young travel hungry professionals highlights the most beautiful and interesting places on the planet – a must see before the summer!
Yasmin Ritchie-Shute – UAL Extended Diploma in Graphic Design

Yasmin’s final major project is a stand out one, her interests in social issues and in particular the impact mankind is having on the planet are highlighted professionally in her FMP. Her magazine ‘Biome’ highlighting the key issues around climate change is a real success. Illustration, layout design and branding all completed to an exquisite and stylish standard.
Jessica Hall – UAL Extended Diploma in Fine Art
Jessica, who previously studied at English Martyrs, is going to study Illustration at Camberwell. If you’re a regular visitor to our shows, you’ll be aware of how fantastic our fine art exhibition looks every year. Jess has used the room as her canvas to provide something that we’ve not seen in the fine art show before. Well worth a visit.
Michael Wilson – UAL Extended Diploma in Fine Art
Michael, who won the Governors Award at this year’s show, previously studied at Unity City Academy and will be staying with us to study Production Design for Stage and Screen at our sister campus in Hartlepool. Michael’s exhibition is a reaction to the social decline of urban areas, impacted upon by the demise of our industrial heritage. Michael has worked using a multi-disciplinary approach, producing intellectually informed work of a technically skilled basis. His practice is a culmination of extensive investigations and a high level of commendable engagement. All elements have been pushed far beyond what was initially envisioned into a presentation of work, executed to that of a degree level student.
Isabella Graham – UAL Extended Diploma in Photography
Isabella previously studied at Our Lady St Bede’s and is going to study Fashion Photography at Leeds Arts University. Bella has shown individual flair in her self-portraits. She has made a body of work that reflects the notion of stereotypes and the way in which we identify and try differing social groups whilst finding our place in society. Her work shows a sophisticated discussion with how we want to be perceived within society, and the tribal behaviour of fitting in.
Frazer, previously studied at Redcar Academy and his work can’t fail to command your attention when you visit the Interior, architecture and product area! Frazer developed his ideas from a range of stimuli to progress his ideas to a full working prototype. He has demonstrated his ability to deal with 2D and 3D design decisions whilst maintaining his focus on the initial project concept.
