Kettering Museum and Art Gallery has teamed up with schools and nurseries throughout the area to give children and young people an opportunity to display their artwork.

The free exhibition, being run in partenrship with Kettering Rotary Club, opened on Friday (June 6) and runs until June 28.

The artworks were made by children as part of special projects with the exhibition in mind, or as part of their school curriculum.

Among the schools and nurseries taking part are: Isebrook SEN College, Kettering Buccleuch Academy, Park Infant School, Mawsley Primary School, St Peter’s Primary School, Park Avenue Nursery School and Railway Children Nursery.

Kettering Rotary Club have provided prizes for outstanding young artists who have submitted their art to be showcased.

Shirley Plenderleith, Kettering Council’s head of environmental health said: “This exhibition provides the opportunity for young artists to showcase their talent and hard work to their families and friends.

“Come along and support the young talent we have in Kettering and be amazed by the work they have produced.”

Cllr Jan Smith, the council’s portfolio holder for community and culture said: “Kettering Museum and Art Gallery continually offer the children in Kettering the opportunity to get involved with history and art.

“This exhibition is exciting as it showcases the number of young people in Kettering who are already inspired by art and are already inspiring others with their own art.”
