During the last two years we have lived through unprecedented times and our young people have been affected in profound ways. In education, creativity has been through an incredibly challenging time, due to various lock downs, class bubbles, and remote learning, which has impacted on time in the studio for our pupils and students. These challenging times have been heightened by the removal of an externally set assignment from the examination boards, which would provide pupils and students an examination type of task and a period of sustained focus. At Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, we have done our utmost to provide quality learning opportunities by keeping our art studios open as much as possible. This body of work reflects the art produced during this time and celebrates returning to normality for our A level Fine Art students.

We are pleased to invite pupils, students, parents/carers and their families to a private viewing art exhibition at The Haworth Art Gallery, Manchester Rd, Accrington, BB5 2JS on Thursday 18th November from 6pm till 8pm.

Tickets are not required and entry is free.

Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School are privileged to have their own Gallery room to display an array of our students’ work. The Creative Faculty staff will be available to discuss how the room was curated.

QEGS art teacher, Mr Graeme Windle, founder of Atlantic Contemporary Art will present works from The National Portrait Gallery, Sky Portrait Artist of The Year, Royal Academy Summer Show, BP Portrait Prize Exhibition. The National Open Art prize will be on show for the duration of the joint exhibition and there will be Artists from Atlantic Contemporary Art available to discuss their own work and their achievements.
