Uncovering treasures from young artists’ sketchbooks

16th October 2016

The exhibition aims to showcase the outstanding preparatory drawings, prints, embroidery, models and photographs that often hide within the pages of lovingly crafted sketchbooks and folders.

Head of Art, Leanne Kingston added “The focus is normally on the outcome but as all creative people know, the ideas are discovered and recorded in a variety of methods on paper before they are brought more fully to life on canvas, garments, wall hangings or in 3D form. Each girl has thoughtfully selected a piece of work that exhibits her talents, observations and interests.”

Artistsmeet are proud to be supporting creative young people in local secondary schools by offering an opportunity to showcase their skills and to have their work featured in a contemporary gallery space.
