Creative Harpenden pupils’ guerilla tactics

SCHOOLCHILDREN have shown their artistic flair by exhibiting their work in two new Guerilla Galleries exhibitions.

Youngsters from Grove Infants and Nursery School in Harpenden have their work on display at two locations after taking part in the new art initiative.

Throughout July and August their work will be on display at Somerfield in Harpenden in the first in-store Guerilla Galleries exhibition in conjunction the St Albans Arts Sport and Health (SAASH).

And their endeavours will also be on show at Luton Airport Parkway Station where train operators First Capital Connect (FCC) have also been involved with the project.

The aim of Guerilla Galleries is to showcase locally-produced art work to the public in unexpected spaces as well as promote closer links with communities and businesses.

The pupils worked in conjunction with local artist Natasha Rehman to create creepy crawly collages made from recycled posters and products.

They were invited to both launches – at Somerfield Deputy Town Mayor Cllr Pat Kent joined the pupils and at Luton Parkway, representatives from SAASH and the school made speeches about how the artwork was put together.
