Staff and students from St Helens College and University Centre St Helens celebrated the achievements of students on a range of Art and Design courses at the annual end of year show, Aspects on 21st June.

Showcasing the work of students on courses ranging from level 1 Art and Design to the one-year Foundation Diploma in Art and Design run by University Centre St Helens, the show, which ran from Thursday 21st June to Tuesday 26th June, provided many students with their first opportunity to exhibit to friends, family and the wider local community.

Transforming the historic SmithKline Beechams building into one of St Helens’ largest galleries, work on display was an eclectic mix of painting, photography, graphic design and concepts created using the latest gaming and digital technology.

An annual event, highly regarded in the College calendar, the Aspects exhibition allowed students to make important decisions on how to display their work, whilst also implementing key employability skills, such as working to deadlines, working as part of a team and communication skills.

The private view concluded with an awards ceremony, where eleven prizes for exemplary work were awarded to one student per subject area/level. Award winner included, Jessica Unsworth, Dean Guest, Kylie McNulty, Molly Hinton-Jones, Megan Bradbury, Kayleigh Quinn, Ryan Morris, Ross Kelly, Ryan Evans, Emma Boon and Georgia McClymont.

Speaking on the night, Paul Hatton, Head of Creative Arts said, “I continue to be amazed by the talents of our students, with the end of year show providing the perfect opportunity for students to showcase the hard work and commitment they have made to their chosen subject throughout the year. The exhibition also provides a great opportunity for students to reflect on their work and evidences how much their portfolios have grown throughout the academic year.”
