Year 11 Art Exhibition

Darwen Art Students Get Professional

Art students showcased their talents in an open exhibition on Thursday 21st May featuring an impressive collection of inspiring artistic creations, from paintings to sculptures. The DACA Year 11 art students put together a unique and professional exhibition, featuring the very best of their work from the last two years, which all counted towards their final GCSE qualifications.

The work displayed was created in-line with a number of thought-provoking themes including, Racism in the American Culture, Auschwitz, Africa, Life Support and Marriage. Among the unique pieces on show were a range of self-portrait, 3D work and sculptures. The free-of-charge exhibition also presented the opportunity for the artistic students to utilise their entrepreneurial skills as, in true art gallery style, they were given the opportunity to sell any work they chose to members of the public.   

Mr. Loughran said: “We have some incredibly talented young artists here at DACA and have been astounded by the standard of work our Year 11’s have produced. All students involved have worked very hard in preparation for their Art GCSE and I would like to congratulate them on the inspiring pieces they have created.”
