The Bishop’s Stortford Museum is delighted to be associated with an initiative which presents the art of local school children to the local community.
Deputy Curator came up with this idea in 2006 and this is proudly our 10th anniversary since The Gallery at Rhodes has been working with the local schools and helping them promotes the students art.
Both Primary and almost all Secondary schools from Bishop’s Stortford have been exhibiting with us for all these years and we believe that we have proven to be a successful mediator in this respect.
The art work is exciting and it shouldn’t be considered as a luxury. It provides an essential message about the importance of encouraging each child’s complete development.
Seeing the student’s work in the professional art space is creating an appreciation for visual aesthetics.
We are glad that we had the opportunity to welcome the chance to display and treasure the children’s works of art and that we could have been part of that positive ‘ buzz’ that exhibitions always have.
The Involvement of both parents and friends has become an essential part of this unique experience.
Every June the Gallery is booked for the A level art and you are more than welcome to come and enjoy a tour of the gallery and discuss the student’s art with your dearest ones.
