Saturday 10 June - Friday 30 June
We are delighted that our popular annual ‘Schools’ Art’ exhibition is back for its 14th year. As ever, the display will provide a riotous show of colour as we showcase carefully curated works of art all created by local schoolchildren.
The 9 schools taking part this year have been led by Madeleine Vaughan, Littlehampton Locality Business Management Advisor, and are:
Arundel C of E Primary St. Mary’s C of E Primary
Lyminster Primary St. Philips Catholic Primary
River Beach Primary Summerlea Community Primary
Rustington Community Primary White Meadows Primary Academy
St Catherine's Catholic Primary
This year, local schools have been studying the inspirational book ‘Wonder’ by R. J. Palacio, which tells the story of a young boy with a rare facial deformity. The theme of identity runs throughout the book, and the children have designed and created masks to express their own thoughts about identity. These beautiful masks are as varied and unique as the children who made them, and will be displayed together in the Museum’s Hearne Gallery to create a powerful effect.
