Thursday 4 June saw the launch of Sixth Form College Associations online art exhibition, ‘At Home’. Three Coulsdon College students; Katya Granovskiy, Desislava Doneva and Lewis Tappenden, alongside 137 other Sixth Form students from across the country submitted their photographs for the exhibition that runs from 4th June to 19th June.
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”.
Bill Watkin, Chief Executive of the Sixth Form Colleges Association, said: “At home highlights the extraordinary artistic talent that exists in our sector. We are holding this exhibition to recognise and celebrate excellence in sixth form colleges, but also to stimulate our thinking about the world this summer. It is imperative that we keep the arts in education secure and flourishing.”
Congratulations Katya, Desislava and Lewis, we are so proud to see you publish your own work and represent Coulsdon College! You can catch their work on Sixth Form College Associations website here.
