The Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum and professional artist Caroline Parrott have worked with selected classes from three local primary schools: Heathlands Primary Academy, St Clements and St John’s Infant School and St. Luke’s Church of England Primary School.
Over 200 Key Stage One pupils have had the opportunity to visit the Russell-Cotes to explore the house and collection and participate in a printing workshop.
After the museum visit, the artist spent time with each class at school helping the pupils to produce their own artistic responses to the work by which they had been inspired at the museum.
The Treasures exhibition is the culmination of the project, which has seen the pupils create a new ‘room’ in the Russell-Cotes.
This exhibition was supported by the Cultural Hub. The Bournemouth and Poole Cultural Hub is a not-for-profit partnership between schools and cultural organisations in the Bournemouth and Poole conurbation.
