On the spot
"This exhibition forces the idea that drawing isn't just a pencil on a piece of paper, it's about making all types of marks with a large variety of materials. We make sure the students note the artists down and the materials used, and hopefully that will have the knock-on effect that back at school they feel more relaxed about using a variety of materials to make their point. There's a note under each picture about the artist, materials, date and description, which is very clear. There's a good variety of types of work, and the layout of the gallery helps works interlink. The enabler brought the children into the equation well. She had a nice manner and some good ideas. There are bits and pieces and pencils so they can draw themselves and try out rubbings. At the Millennium Galleries there's always an opportunity for children to participate, so they can see they're not just here to see something on a wall."
