Prestwich Arts College Pupils Exhibit Work at Saint Mary’s Hospital
Art pupils at Prestwich Arts College to be given VIP treatment at Saint Mary’s Hospital where they have brightened the corridors with their art work. The specially made art work is exhibited within the National Genetics Research Laboratory reception area for all guests and visitors to see.
The Head of the Laboratory, Rob Elles, has invited the pupils to the hospital, in appreciation of their efforts and interest, on Monday 19th December 2005. There will be a lunch for the children and a tour of the genetic labs to give them a real insight into the world of genetics, through a presentation and demonstrations.
The group has worked on the project with the Genetic Interest Group’s Artist-in-Residence, Sayward Morley, in line with their GCSE Identity Project. It will give the pupils real experience of having their work on display in a public arena, and at the same time, provide them with a greater knowledge and understanding of the medical world.
Art Teacher Ross Constable says: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the art pupils, as it will give them a real sense of what they can achieve and have achieved in the real world.”
