Artwork and animations created by students from Farnborough Academy in Clifton went on show at the Nottingham Contemporary gallery last weekend.
The group of 20 students were at the gallery for a special preview of the exhibition, before their creations went on display to the public as part of an event celebrating the work of local school pupils.
The students, who are all studying GCSE Fine Art or Photography at Farnborough, were given the opportunity of showcasing their work thanks to the gallery’s ‘Start’ programme, which offers city pupils creative new experiences.
The 14 and 15 year olds took recent Raphael Hefti and Rights of Nature exhibitions at the gallery as their inspiration.
They then produced their own art, sculpture and multi-media work at a series of four workshops co-ordinated by local artist Sam Metz.
Julianne England, head of Expressive Arts at Farnborough, said: “Experiences like these really bring learning to life for our pupils and inspire them to go on to great things.
“Being able to see their work displayed in a prestigious city gallery gives them a huge sense of pride and achievement.”
