The exhibition will be assessed by the chief moderator for Art and Design from Pearson.
The exhibition also welcomed renowned artist and calligrapher Sabah Arbilli. Arbilli has shown his calligraphy-based artworks throughout the world and he was impressed with the breadth of subjects and how the young students’ art projected them.
