Oatlands pupils' art back in London spotlight at Saatchi Gallery
Artistic young Harrogate pupils' time in the limelight at the Saatchi Gallery in London is to be extended.
Having done phenomenally well to be nominated from 22,000 entries from 54 countries for the international 2016 Saatchi Gallery/Deutsche Bank Art Prize for Schools, Oatlands Junior School’s creation will now be on show for a second run from April 5.
The pupils' installation art piece, called Conserving Our Biodiversity, was the work of the entire school.
Under the guidance of Oatlands Junior School's art teacher, Sam Joseph, it was originally exhibited with the 19 other finalists from rond the world earlier this month.
After the winner was chosen by the judges, the gallery was so impressed with the standard, directors at Saatchi decided to exhibit all the finalist’s work again.
