To mark the end of another successful year for the Public Programme, on Friday 9th December, we had the talented and dedicated pupils from Chisenhale School hold their Arts Award Exhibition at Chisenhale Art Place.

Arts Award is a valuable project which aims to inspire young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it’s creative and accessible. The programme at the school is led by the artist Sara Heywood.

Once again the school partnered with Chisenhale to help enrich their experience with visits to our Studio Artists.
This year they visited Jeremy Hutchison and then Byzantia Harlow, who was resident in Studio4 during August and September. The budding artists then created new work which responded directly to these visits.

At the end of their project the children held an exhibition here, inviting the whole school plus parents and studio artists.
