Art show celebrates talent of Sheffield care leavers

The event was organised to celebrate the artistic skills and work of care leavers and also included a DJ, VR snowboarding, a chocolate fountain and raffle.

More than 60 care leavers attended the event and showcased their work.

Care leaver Ethan, who made some graffiti art at the event, said:
It was the best night of my life, it’s made me want to get out of the house and meet people more.

Sheffield based company, Mural Artists, led a graffiti art workshop designed to build confidence and self-expression by letting care leavers try out their skills.

Graffiti art done legally and with permission can range from a fun social activity to a professional art career.

Councillor Jackie Drayton, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Families, said:
CLASS was a brilliant event for Sheffield care leavers to show off their creativity and fantastic artistic skills including; art, photography, poetry, music making, singing, rapping and beat boxing.

It was a wonderful evening to be part of; I really enjoyed myself celebrating with our incredible care leavers. Well done to the Sheffield Care Leavers Union and all those involved in organising the event – a brilliant night was had by all!
