The power of art

The Academy of St Nicholas and All Saints Sixth Form College held a three day event showcasing the work of up to 60 artworks from GCSE and A-level art students, which were put on display for the local community.

Locals were also able to observe a live art competition, which involved 15 students from different year groups to compete and to produce a show-stopping painting inspired by South Liverpool. Visitors were asked to vote for their favourite piece and the winning design will be displayed at New Mersey shopping centre.

Caroline Swarbrick, careers and employability manager at the Academy of St Nicholas, said: “There really is some great young talent in our city, and what a fantastic opportunity to celebrate it. I’d like to say a huge thank you to the team at New Mersey on behalf of all our students and the teachers involved for allowing us to use their facilities to stage the exhibition.”

Lorraine Hughes, head of art at the Academy of St Nicholas and All Saints Sixth Form College said: “The students work extremely hard to create a diverse variety of outstanding artwork, and this amazing opportunity allowed for the work to be seen by a greater audience which was highly praised by visitors and the local community”.
