Children at Harriers Banbury Academy have unveiled their new art gallery at the school after working with Banbury and Bicester College.

The work is in a small area of the school based in Harriers View and was opened this morning (Tuesday) by Lisa Dukes, head of campus at Banbury and Bicester College on Broughton Road.

The journey started with a visit to Banbury and Bicester College’s art department by pupils in Years Four, Five and Six, where they learned about different types of art and the techniques and equipment artists use.

The young artists then spent a day at school, supported by parents, completing their artwork which now forms part of the display.

Banbury and Bicester College are also offering a Saturday art school starting from January 16 to March 19.
