Twenty-one schools in Batley and Birstall have been working on an art and education project.
You can see the results at Batley Art Gallery until September.
The project is called Change and has been co-ordinated by community arts organisation Mosaic and Batley Girls’ High School, in partnership with other schools in the area.
Each school chose a group of children and young people to take part ranging from age five to 13. There were 550 in all.
Each school was allocated an artist to work with them for three sessions spread over a number of weeks.
Together they came up with a project plan, not only for the artist-led sessions, but also for how teachers might supplement the sessions with other complementary activities linked to the Change theme.
Every school group partnered up with a group in another school for the duration of the project to keep in touch with each other’s activities and share their creative ideas and experiences.
The aim has been to encourage exchanges and new connections between young people in Batley and Birstall.
The joint exhibition at Batley Art Gallery runs throughout the summer until September 6 and groups and artists have been adding updates and feedback to their project pages as the projects have progressed.
