An experience to draw on: Youngsters’ artworks on display

The ‘South Ribble Primary Schools’ Art Exhibition’ is now on show in Leyland.

A total of 500 artworks, created by children from 23 different primary schools, can be seen at South Ribble Museum and Exhibition Centre.

It is hoped that hundreds of proud parents, family and friends will visit to see the colourful creations – and they have until Saturday 9 June to do so.

The museum and exhibition centre in Leyland, set up in 1978 specifically for this type of event which supports local art, schools, education and talent, is open from 10am till 4pm on Tuesdays and Fridays, as well as 1pm till 4pm on Wednesdays, and 10am till 1pm on Saturdays.

The museum’s curator, Dr David Hunt, said: “The exhibition captures what the museum is all about: celebrating local culture, history and achievements, and giving South Ribble artists a platform for their work. The founders of the museum would be well pleased with this year’s efforts and I hope as many people as possible pay the museum a visit for this and future exhibitions.”
