The Arts Society King's Lynn (TASKL) will be working with Whitefriars Church of England Primary Academy, on a series of art workshops, which will culminate with an exhibition of all the work produced by the children.

The theme for the exhibition is recycled nature with all the exhibits being made from recycled items collected by the children and members of the local arts society.

TASKL's young arts coordinator Tricia Rowlands said: "Each year group is working on a different project, but all are based on the natural world and include insects, animals, plants and environmental issues.

"We have made use of plastic bottles, waste packaging, glass jars, newspapers and even ironed crisp packets to produce what we hope will be a surprising and varied exhibition.

"We are aiming to beat the total of 600 visitors to the exhibition who came last year to view the children's work.

"We feel very strongly that every child in the school should have their work included in the exhibition as art is for all to enjoy and the feed-back we received last year would certainly seem to suggest that exhibition visitors agreed.

Whitefriars headteacher, Mat Tuckwood said: "Last year's exhibition as the highlight of the school year."

Everyone is invited to go along to the Hanse Gallery above the Rathskeller Bar on the South Quay between Tuesday July 5 and Thursday July 7 from 9.30am - 4pm to judge for themselves.
