An exhibition of work by pupils from Wootton Primary School has opened in an arts space in Northampton town centre.

As part of a sceince, art and writing project, children aged from four to 11 made paintings, designed sculptures and took photographs which are now being displayed in the Collective Collaborations gallery in the Market walk shopping centre.

The art exhibition, which focused on the theme of light, was officially opend by Councillor Roger Conroy, the Mayor of Northampton on Tuesday.

Marie Lally, deputy headteacher of Wootton Pirmary School, said: “I am immensely proud of the children as they have worked very hard.

“Having an art exhibition of work by children aged from four to 11 has probably never been done before. It is great to see that even during half-term a lot of the chidlren have turned up to see their work.”

The artwork, which was created with the help of undergraduate students from The University of Northampton, will be on display until March 2.

The university students have shared skills from BA (Hons) Photographic Practice, BA (Hons) Fine Art and Foundation Art and Design.

Some of the pupils who have their work displayed in the town centre art gallery have said they feel “really proud” of themselves.

Emma Clayton, aged 10, said: “It was actually really interesting. I learnt about how you can change the shutter speed on a camera to create different light. To see the work in the gallery just makes me feel really proud of myself.”

Kai Wittich, aged nine, said: “I feel pretty proud. I’ve never had anything displayed in a gallery like this.”
