Printmaking glory

15th June 2007 at 01:00
Primary, secondary and special needs pupils from schools in Cumbernauld, North Lanark-shire, will have the chance to see their own artwork on show when New Editions opens at the Glasgow Print Studio today.

The exhibition, which runs at 48 King Street, Trongate, until July 5, features dozens of works made using a wide variety of printmaking techniques.

Pupils from two high schools, 10 primary schools and a special needs school produced the work as part of a project to re-introduce printmaking into the art curriculum. Over five months, printmaking facilities were established in the high schools, printmakers visited the schools and teachers took part in continuing professional development sessions in Glasgow.

New Editions has been structured to allow participating P6-7 pupils to continue in S1-2.
