Cronton Sixth Form College students stage art exhibition at St Paul’s Church in Widnes
THE stunning surroundings of St Paul’s Church provided the backdrop for an art exhibition and fashion show for sixth formers from across Halton.
Students from Cronton Sixth Form College displayed their work inside the Victoria Square building as part of the INSPIRED 2012 showcase.
The annual exhibition was a key event in the vocational creative arts calendar this year as students studying graphics, photography, fashion, textiles, general art and design, 3D design and arts and crafts were exhibiting their work for final grading.
Maxine Mealey, head of vocational, creative and performing arts at Cronton Sixth Form College, said: “Our aim was to exhibit a diverse range of student art work within a professional setting both to demonstrate the exceptionally high standards our students are achieving and to invite people to come and be inspired.
“The outcome was superb and is testament to the dedication and talent of our students.
“St Paul’s Church provided a stunning gallery and support for our project for which we are incredibly grateful.”
The Rev Jeremy Duff, vicar at St Paul’s, said: “St Paul’s was delighted to welcome Cronton Sixth Form College for their outstanding art exhibition.
“It’s a joy to see the God-given creativity of our young people showcased and celebrated here on Victoria Square in the heart of Widnes.
He added: “St Paul’s Church is one of the greatest spaces in Widnes – built to be at the heart of the public life of this great town; this exhibition has been a brilliant step forward in recapturing that vision. “Thank you students – we were Inspired.”
