Young people celebrate Hartlepool in an art exhibition at the Middleton Grange shopping center

Since the end of July, young people aged 10 to 16 have been meeting up to four evenings a week, for four hours, and unleashing their creativity while celebrating what they love most in Hartlepool.

More than 45 young people have participated so far, learning the basics of the art and working on creating an artwork for an upcoming exhibition.

The sessions were led by Ana McIntyre, with support from Jacob Robinson.

Kathryn Hall, Artrium project manager, congratulated the young people for their work.

“There are some really talented kids in town,” Kathryn said.

“We want to do an exhibition to celebrate the work and the talent, something nice for them at the end of the four weeks.

The young people created paintings and took photographs, but also produced 3D works, such as mosaics and stained glass effect artwork.

Kathryn said the work included different parts of the city, with the headland being one of the most featured.

She added: “It’s a mix of different parts of the city. A lot of it seems like a seascape.”

The Art Summer School will conclude with a four-week exhibition at the Artrium Gallery in the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre.

It will open on August 25 from 2-4 p.m., and food and drinks will be available.
