Art exhibition 'gives pupils pride and recognition'

August 31 2018

STUDENTS from Pathways Learning Centre in Downend staged an art exhibition on the theme of Identity.

Their work was on show at Easton Community Centre and Fishponds Library. 

Pathways is for children who are unable to attend mainstream school for various reasons.

Art teacher Anita Gardner said: “We feel public art exhibitions are an essential element of celebrating achievement of the young people we work with. Many of the young people at PLC have not experienced a feeling of success or recognition within mainstream school and art is fantastic medium to provide an opportunity to be acknowledged in a positive way.”
