Over the past few weeks, young people enrolled in our Express Yourself programme have been exploring a range of different photographic techniques. Working with professional photographer Anthony Hopwood the group tried their hand at street, light drawing, macro and wildlife photography.

Drawing inspiration from Nottingham’s Creative Quarter, the young artists have produced a series of fantastic photographs that, together, make up a new exhibition in Nottingham Train Station’s ‘Case for the Arts’.

“Working on this project was great fun, inspired me, and most importantly taught me skills and techniques that I can use for improvement now and in the future”

“I have enjoyed seeing how all the pictures turned out”

Designed to support young people, aged 13-17, with emotional and social issues, City Arts’ Express Yourself programme offers its participants a safe, creative environment in which to learn new skills and build their confidence.

The photographs are being exhibited in the ‘Case for the Arts’ in Nottingham Train Station. The exhibition runs until the 13th March 2017.

Competition Time!

The train station exhibition features a miniature diorama. We are inviting the public to take a photo of the scene and share it with us via social media using the hashtag #CityArtsMiniPics. The best photo will win an Apexel 5 in 1 HD Camera Lens Kit!
