At home

The national art exhibition for sixth form college students

4th-19th June 2020

Talented young artists express their feelings about living at home during a global pandemic.

This online exhibition celebrates the arts and recognises excellence in sixth form colleges, which represent a vital supply pipeline of talented artists of the future. It is imperative that we keep the arts in education secure and flourishing. If young people are to make a truly valuable contribution to society, even if they are to be successful scientists, engineers, doctors and technicians, they need to develop their creative skills, their artistic sensitivities and their ability to interact with others.

Launching the exhibition, Gillian Keegan, Apprenticeships and Skills Minister said: “This has been a difficult time for the entire country but this exhibition is a wonderful example of how creativity can flourish in the face of adversity. It’s great to see how these sixth form students have captured the experiences of lockdown from a young person’s perspective. A huge congratulations to all exhibitors and I wish them every success for the future."
