|Children's work to form art exhibition|
A new art exhibition will display work by local children from as young as three years old.
The exhibition, at The Lightbox, in Woking, will feature the work of children from six local schools between the ages of three and 16.
Students from Ripley Court School, Byfleet Primary School, Sythwood Primary School, Horsell Village School, New Haw Community Junior School and Woking High School have all been working with The Lightbox to create original works of art inspired by the sculpture and story of ‘Atalanta’ by Leon Underwood, which can be found in The Ingram Collection of Modern British Art.
The youngsters used a range of art forms including sculpture, prints, paintings photography and collage to create their work.
The free exhibition, entitled Centrepiece: Atalanta, was organised in association with Mayford DFAS (Decorative and Fine Arts Society)and the Ernest Cook Trust. It will be on show in the Lower Gallery from 17 July until 9 September 2012.
Throughout the summer there will also be the opportunity to take part in free ‘Drawing in the Courtyard Drop-In Family Workshops’. Drop in any time from 1.30pm – 4pm on Thursday 26 July, Thursday 2 August, Thursday 9 August, Thursday 16 August and Thursday 23 August and make large-scale drawings inspired by the ‘Centrepiece: Atalanta’ exhibition.
