Sudbury businesses set to shine spotlight on artwork by Thomas Gainsborough School students
Sudbury town centre is set to showcase a variety of creative work crafted by art students at Thomas Gainsborough School.
Businesses based in the town have teamed up with the secondary school as part of the Sudbury As Our Canvas project.
Head of art Ed Clark praised the initiative, which he said will enable the public to view the students’ artistic talents.
“The exhibition’s vision is to transform the centre of Sudbury into an open air gallery space where everyone can see and enjoy the work created by students of all years in a variety of media – from photography to textiles, from printmaking to mixed media,” he said.
“At Thomas Gainsborough, we believe strongly in promoting the value of creative education to the development of all learners and are committed to providing them with the richest curriculum and experiences possible.
“Through this exhibition, we hope to provide the opportunity for more people to see and enjoy the work of our young people.”
The project was inspired by collaborative work between the school, Gainsborough’s House, The Arts Society Sudbury and Mill Tye Gallery.
The project launches on July 1.
