Two northwest artists were commissioned to work with one class in each school on the theme of healthy foods: ‘five a day’! During their time with the artists, children discussed where their food comes from and explored working with different materials before producing their pieces for exhibition.

This exhibition is a celebration of the work produced by all the Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 children from the five Accrington schools who took part in the programme.
