The Ben Uri Gallery & Museum is delighted to announce its forthcoming children’s exhibition in partnership with Children & the Arts and three London primary schools. The gallery will be entirely devoted to a multi-sensory display of children’s artwork, stories, photographs and performances to explore and celebrate the art of storytelling.

As part of the national project the Great Art Quest, Sunnyfields Primary (Hendon), The Hyde (Hendon) and Essendine Primary (Maida Vale) have spent the autumn term working closely with storyteller Olivia Armstrong and artist Karen Raingold. 120 upper Key Stage 2 children (ages 9-11) have had the opportunity to develop their creativity, attainment and self-esteem by producing a range of work inspired by Ben Uri’s preceding exhibition about William Rothenstein and his circle.
