Art students from Southgate School hosted an exhibition of their art and put their work up for sale to raise funds for a local hospital charity.

The sixth-form students organised the art exhibition at North Middlesex Hospital, showcasing their artistic talents but also serving as a platform for supporting the local community.

The exhibition featured a diverse array of artwork created by the students and was a testament to their “hard work, dedication, and artistic skill”.

From intricate paintings to captivating photography, each piece of work was themed around ‘icons’.

In addition to displaying their artwork, the students also crafted handmade tote bags. These one-of-a-kind tote bags, along with the art pieces, were made available for sale, with all proceeds going towards projects supported by North Mid Charity.

One of the students involved in organising the exhibition said: “It’s incredibly fulfilling to see our hard work come to fruition and to know that we’re making a difference in the lives of others.

“Art has the power to inspire, to evoke emotions, and to bring people together, and we’re thrilled to harness that power for our local community.”
