PUPILS at Warrington’s Sir Thomas Boteler CE High School are part of an exhibition on London’s South Bank.
The “Rivers of the World” exhibition, outside the Tate Modern, is part of the Thames Festival Trust and is an exhibition of river themed artwork created by young people around the world, under the guidance of professional artists, during the Lockdown.
Young people from Warrington, Halton, London, Peterborough, Coventry and Stockton-on-Tees as well as others and Ethiopia, Sudan, Morocco, Tanzania, Lebanon and India have created artworks from their homes under the direction of artists who provided briefs and films to guide their work.
Boteler pupils created their pieces throughout Lockdown and sent their finished designs to head of art Mrs Joice, who then sent them on local artist Kirsty Rae, who digitally incorporated all the designs together to create the final exhibition banner.
Mrs Joice said: “I am very excited to see the outcome of our students’ artwork. Our students worked really hard over the Lockdown period and it is great to see their work celebrated in such a prime location.”
