Encouraging and celebrating art created locally by young people is at the very heart of PAW. Every year we involve around 500 Purbeck Young Artists (PYA) in schools across the area in creative activities. Students are encouraged to develop art works on the festival theme, which this year is “Renewal’. The workshops have been coordinated by Sebastian McEwen and are implemented by a talented team of artists, each of whom have experience of working with young people. The range of workshops span metalwork, photography, rust printing, sculpture, dance and puppetry. You can see the inspiring results at Rollington Barn.
The PYA exhibition can be found in the newly refurbished cow byre next to the main Rollington Barn exhibition.
