A BUDDING artist is celebrating after one of her drawings was picked to be exhibited in the House of Commons.

Megan Jenner, who studies A-level fine art and BTEC level three computer game design at Priestley College, said: “It’s the first time I have ever had my work exhibited so it is very exciting. I’ve been to London but never the House of Commons so to be invited there is great.”

The 17-year-old will be at the launch of the exhibition, which will be hosted by Alan Johnson MP and attended by the Education Secretary Michael Gove, on March 16.

Her charcoal drawing will sit alongside a variety of other works in the Sixth Form Colleges Art Exhibition.

Priestley tutor Steven Lane said: “To be chosen from so many other pieces of art that will have been submitted for a national exhibition such as this is an incredible achievement.”
