King Canvases at Gallions School

Friday saw a fantastic session of frenzied drawing activity with the 'Hip-Hop' class at Gallions school. The children were fantastic and worked through a number of drawing activities before each of them created a mini canvas painting. It is hoped that the canvases will be displayed alongside the work of pupils from Birdwell Primary School as part of the 154 exhibition which opens at the Cooper Gallery, Barnsley in June.

From Birdwell to Newham.....

Today I spent a really enjoyable and productive day at Birdwell Primary School in Barnsley, working with over 45 children to produce a number of wonderful drawn images, on paper and canvas. The children also produced a number of drawings in 154 seconds for the twitter plus fourteen strand of the project. A selection can be seen here. Tomorrow I travel to Newham to work with children at Gallions School to produce a body of work which will be exhibited alongside the work from Birdwell. All photographs by Yvonne Roberts.
