Visitors will be able to see great British art through the children and young people’s eyes.

This exhibition has been developed by children from Sparken Hill Academy and Sir Edmund Hillary Primary School in Worksop, and Shirebrook Academy in Mansfield. The children and young people, aged between 5 and 16, have worked with curator Selina Skipwith to develop the exhibition from start to finish.

The students have helped to curate and produce the closing exhibition on this prestigious year-long residency from the Jerwood Collection; learning about UK artists, developing the exhibition texts (and their language skills) and giving them the confidence to select their own gallery exhibition.

They have been given free rein to choose exhibits from the collection of over 250 artworks, and have selected an impressive group of works to create their exhibition.

This will be a fun and memorable experience for the students and our visitors.
