SIX schools are displaying their works at Ilminster Arts Centre.

The exhibition is part of the Schools Go Visual project, which celebrates artistic expression and imagination.

Inspired by the works of renowned artists such as Picasso, Kandinski, and Kittie Jones, the exhibition features a captivating array of art pieces that span various mediums and subjects.

Participating institutions include Chard School, Herne View (including Apple Orchard Nursery), Hinton St George Primary, Neroche Primary, South Petherton Junior School, and Shepton Beauchamp Primary.

From Egyptian Masks to Greek pots, animal print pastels to landscape charcoals, Monarchs to shells, and even depictions of the Northern Lights, Stonehenge, and the Great Fire of London, the exhibition offers a kaleidoscope of colours and ideas.

The exhibited artworks are the result of the creative endeavours of six local schools and Year 1 Fine Art Students from Strode College, representing a diverse age range of 2 to 17 years.

Visitors to the exhibition can expect to be immersed in a visual journey that not only showcases the artistic skills of the participants but also reflects the rich cultural tapestry and collective imagination of the region.

For all those interested in experiencing the Schools Go Visual Exhibition, Ilminster Art Centre invites them to explore the showcase before it concludes on Saturday, March 2, at 1pm.

Ilminster Arts Centre was founded in 1995 by artist and illustrator Mary Atherton and her husband Jim.

The centre – now a well-established, thriving multi-arts venue – operates as a registered charity.

It could receive a grant of up to £1,500, as it was selected as one of Tesco’s chosen charities.

The grant could be used to set up arts and crafts workshops for children during the summer.

A spokesperson for the centre previously said: “This opens up the possibility of receiving a grant of up to £1,500, which will be directed towards delivering a series of exciting and affordable art and craft workshops for children during the summer holidays."
