An exhibition celebrating the work of Newham’s students has opened at the University of East London (UEL).
People have flocked to the Art Matters exhibition, which is an annual showcase of work from children aged four to 18 in the borough.
The free exhibit is funded by the University of the Arts and UEL, and is designed to show the impact art and design has on children’s development.
Catherine McGill, who has worked on the project since it began in 1999, said: “The show is a great chance for students to see their work in a gallery setting alongside other artists at different levels.
“It’s an opportunity to see how their own skills might progress and to get inspired by new ideas.”
There was work on show from 2,000 students from 50 educational establishments, including schools, Saturday masterclasses, colleges and universities.
The exhibition will run until this Friday from 10am to 5.30pm daily.
