Under 5’s in Taunton put on Knee High Exhibition

Tuesday 19 July, 12.30 - 1.15pm in the Activities Room at Hillside Children’s Centre

On Tuesday 19 July the Hillside Children’s Centre in Taunton is cutting the ribbon on a brand new art exhibition designed by children for children.

Artists as young as three years old have been getting really creative making artworks for the Knee High Gallery, which has been hung at child height (knee and navel to us), standing at only 60cm from the floor.  The idea is to create a fantastic visual and tactile experience for really small children.

The Knee High Gallery is part of Take Art’s two year Little Big Bang project, which aims to improve young children’s quality of life and learning through regular creative activity.

The work from this exhibition has been put together by children and families at Hillside Children’s Centre and Brook Green Nursery, who have been working closely with visual and multi media artist Richard Tomlinson.

Richard said, “Participants have experimented with all sorts of materials, from beach pebbles to buttons. What they create is colourful, textured, shiny and always beautiful!”

The Knee High Gallery is open to children and families and will be of particular interest for 2-5 year olds, with lots of opportunities to explore their own creativity.

Press are invited to attend the opening on Tuesday 19 at 12.30pm and photo and interview opportunities will be available on request.To arrange a press visit please contact Take Art press officer Louise Monks on 01460 249450 or email louise@takeart.org
