Each year, a theme is chosen which relates to our Collection and the participating schools are shown works which relate to the chosen theme. The children take inspiration from the artworks and work collaboratively to create their own responses.
This year’s theme is Walking the Line, exploring how drawing and mark-making is the starting point for expressing ourselves. The works which were chosen from our collection which reflect this subject include Sleeping Fawn by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and L12, 1957 by Hans Hartung.
Walking the Line can be interpreted in many different ways – marking a boundary – keeping a balance between two extremes – so expect a wonderfully rich and varied exhibition of the many talents of children and young people from Eastbourne and across the county.
