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 Purbeck in creative activities. This year, thanks to the generosity of our local sponsors, we have again been able to offer 17 workshops to schools across Purbeck. Led by four experienced artists the workshops took up the Festival theme of ‘Flights of Fancy’ exploring various techniques that students might not otherwise experience: 3D assemblage, mono printing, metal work, rust printing, cyanotypes, stone carving and animation.
The PYA exhibition can be found in the newly refurbished cow byre next to the main Rollington Barn exhibition.
