Ikon Insiders

Subscribe to RSS RSSThursday, 13th May, 2010

The launch of the Ikon Insiders showcase takes place at the Ikon Gallery on Friday 14 May at 4.30-6.30pm.

Since 2008 Ikon Gallery has worked closely with three local primary schools as part of The Prince's Foundation for Children & The Arts Start Programme. During this time, every child from St George's C.E. and St Thomas' C.E. in Ladywood, and Osborne Primary in Erdington, made two visits to the Ikon Gallery each year. The children worked alongside artist educators Liz Rowe and Bryony Graham, and Emma Bowen of Ikon's learning team, to explore the exhibitions and make their own creative responses, including sculpture, photography and painting.

Artwork created by children involved in this project will be on display in Ikon's Events Room on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 May from 11-6pm.

Ikon Insiders is kindly supported by The Prince's Foundation for Children & The Arts, The George Fentham Trust, The Ernest Cook Trust , and The Allen and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Settlement.
