Hundreds of visitors flocked to a Sheffield college to see students showcase their very best work from the current academic year.

Creative students at Longley Park Sixth Form College took centre stage during a week-long exhibition held at the campus on Horninglow Road, Longley.

The big opening night was a VIP preview event where students from 3D design, art and design, English, graphics, media, photography and textiles presented their work in the college plaza.

The show also included dance and performing arts performances as well as a variety of music from students.

Young people produced their creations from project briefs set out as part of their A Level and BTEC courses.

They were given the chance to experiment with a variety of techniques, materials and processes, giving them an array of new skills and allowing them to build up a substantial portfolio of work.

The show had an amazing turn-out throughout the week.

Deputy director for art and design Rob Barker said: “It has been a fantastic show which has allowed our students to showcase their amazing talents. I felt immensely proud of all the creative students across college.”

Longley Park has been selected to run University of Arts London art courses from September, including architecture and fine art.

UAL is made up of six internationally renowned art colleges which include Central St Martins and London College of Fashion.
