Budding artists from Earlham are part of Art Matters

Art works from pupils at Earlham Primary were chosen to be exhibited in Art Matters, a pop-exhibition at the University of London.

Art Matters — a joint venture between 40 Newham primary schools, the University of East London and the University of the Arts London — ran throughout August.

It is an entertaining showcase designed to explore the power of art and creativity across the curriculum and how art can inspire a future generation of imaginative talent.

This exhibition provides young people with a chance to see the art world and the different types of careers in art and design. The exhibition this year explored the power of art and creativity across the curriculum and celebrated 20 years of the show

The exhibition also featured an interactive installation in Westfield Stratford City which saw works chosen from 2,000 pieces to be displayed for their relevance and application of colour across different mediums. One of which was a piece by a year Year 3  Earlham pupil who created colourful Roman Mosaic patterns.

Laura Hewer, Headteacher of Earlham Primary, said: “Events like this give our children the chance to see what is possible and open them up to new careers that they can aspire to. There was a real sense of pride and achievement from children and their families, seeing their hard work recognised and on show at the University and in Westfield.”
