Young Gallery Salisbury takes part in Children’s Art Week

As part of Children’s Art Week (13-21 June), the Young Gallery is exhibiting selected work from the Robin Tanner Children’s Art Collection produced in the 1930’s.

Primarily an artist and etcher, Robin Tanner was also an advocate of art in children’s education, later becoming a teacher as a way to supplement his living. During 1935 – 1964, he worked for the Ministry of Education as Inspector of Schools (Primary) where he developed and ran conferences and courses for teachers.

Tanner’s personal sketch book was the inspiration for a recent exhibition ‘The Plant Project’, curated by the artist Prudence Maltby, as part of the preSENSE project.

In ‘SEEING- through a child’s eyes’ we view the work of his students; we see how they saw the world, their influences, their choices.

Families are invited to participate in a collaborative artwork to sit within the exhibition, exploring childhood in 2015.

Free Drop-in Workshop, Saturday 20th June, 11:00 – 13:00, Gallery 3. All ages welcome.
