Budding artists are hoping that their latest exhibition will be a roaring success.
Youngsters from Chapel Break Infant School in Norwich staged a private view of Where do Monsters Come From? at Norwich Arts Centre yesterday.
This is the 7th year that the school has held an exhibition at the arts centre. It is part of the Thinking, Arts, Reflective, Dialogue, Imagination, Studio (Tardis) initiative at Chapel Break.
Tardis is designed to give children a voice and space to explore, question and create and consists of two rooms at the school where ideas are discussed, shared, and then produced.
Jane Calderwood, Tardis teacher, said: “This day is the highlight of the TARDIS year. It brings together the children’s ideas from the whole year.
“Having their work exhibited, it makes them happy and makes them excited and they look forward to coming to school.”
The artwork on display and the names the children gave their works, including “Dragon with glasses defeats the baddies”, displays the creativity the children are encouraged to show.
Year two pupils, who had participated in previous Tardis exhibitions, excitedly spoke in front of proud parents, pupils and the Lord Mayor Keith Driver, about their love for the art work they created.
Mia Youngs-Lloyd, seven, said: “Art is one of my favourite subjects at school. That is why I love spending time in the Tardis. The art room I call the messy room and it doesn’t matter how much mess we make.”
■ The exhibition is on until June 23.
