Swindon Schools Creative Project and Exhibition

We are delighted to invite pupils to respond creatively to artworks on the theme of ‘Home’ from the Swindon Collection of Modern British Art. A selection of artworks from each participating school will be exhibited at the Corner Gallery, a pop-up gallery in Swindon Town Centre, for all of Swindon to enjoy! Winning artworks will then be selected from each school to form part of a final schools exhibition. Pupils, staff and parents will be invited to attend a grand opening!

The project can be delivered by schools in one lesson or over a series of weeks. All teaching resources are provided. We can also provide resource boxes and workshops. Every part of the project is FREE. Schools can take part in the project until December 2021.

How does it work?

STEP 1 – schools choose an artwork from a selection on the theme of home

STEP 2 – pupils explore the artwork

STEP 3 – pupils produce a creative response to the artwork

STEP 4 – artworks are exhibited in Swindon Town Centre
