A CELEBRATION OF OUR TWO-YEAR OUTREACH PROJECT THINK, TALK, MAKE ART
I Chose This brings together more than 50 pieces of artwork, which have been on loan to nine primary schools across West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly through Think, Talk, Make Art, a major schools and teachers project.
The works on display were selected by children at each of the nine participating schools from the Arts Council Collection and Cornwall Council Schools Art Collection to create in-school galleries. The children involved in choosing the works made their choices collaboratively, through careful consideration and lively discussion. Artwork selected spans the 20th and 21st centuries and encompasses painting, print and sculpture. Artists featured, include Bryan Pearce, Barbara Hepworth, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Jeffrey Steele, Alan Lowndes, Victor Passmore, Richard Bell, Georgia Hayes, Laura Godfrey-Isaacs, Estelle Thompson, Des Hughes and Sue Smith alongside many others.
Of the schools who participated, the five mainland schools were Ludgvan, Nancledra, Newlyn, Pensans, and St Hilary Primary Schools, and on the Isles of Scilly, St Agnes, St Martins, St Mary’s, and Tresco Primary Bases.
