Highbury College students hard work paid off after being given the chance to exhibit their fantastic talents in this year’s Creative Showcase.

Select family and friends viewed and enjoyed the different exhibitions the College’s Art & Design, Digital Media and Community Art students put together despite continued restrictions.

Level 3 UAL Applied General Diploma in Art & Design Kirstie Lake said: “It’s been really good. It’s been amazing to see everybody’s work and to see how much variation there is in our work.

“It’s been a really good experience getting ready for an exhibition, going through that process and deciding what to show and what not to show.”

Kirstie’s aunt, Lisa Briant, said: “It’s great to see so many different processes of work coming out from one theme and seeing all the different techniques. It’s been really good to see it in person – that’s how art should be viewed.”

The evening included art and photography exhibitions and cinematic showreels that students have created as part of their qualification.

Director of Learning for Young People Sarah Warren said: “It was a great success and the art, media and photography work displayed was outstanding. It was a real pleasure to be able to observe such a high standard of work, particularly in such a difficult year for everybody. Well done and thank you to all our students who contributed work for the Creative Showcase and to those that supported the event in other ways.

“Thanks also to all our staff for their support in putting together the Creative Showcase and allowing students the opportunity to display their work despite such restricted circumstances. Congratulations everyone.”
