Sense of Place

Working with artists Paul Merrick, Louise Bradley, Nicola Lynch and Graham Patterson, Sense of Place is an exhibition of work created by pupils from Holy Trinity First School, St Cuthbert's First School, Tweedmouth Middle School, and Spittal First School as part of the Create, Aspire, Transform programme.

356 pupils worked with their chosen artists over 5 days after spending time researching their localities, collecting information, exploring techniques and visiting galleries before creating their final work for the joint exhibition.

This is the second stage of the programme and the second exhibition. The Create, Aspire, Transform programme, workshops and Sense of Place exhibitions have been supported by an Explore and Test grant from Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
