The Heritage School officially opened its annual art exhibition in the school’s Apollo Hall under the theme “Integrating Images”.
The exhibition showcased different forms of high-quality artwork by children as young as 2 years old and aged up to 18 years old. Art forms on display ranged from breathtaking drawings, paintings in varied media, 3-dimensional models, t-shirt prints, batiks, music and dance. The opening night was at 5pm on Tuesday 6th June. The special guest artist was the well-renowned Ann Hamilton-King, who spoke on the importance of sustaining art education in schools. In her opening speech, she expounded on how art is being used as a form of therapy, and that she herself was currently working with numerous organisations to provide art therapy to a number of people who suffer from different ailments. This type of therapy has shown positive results. The exhibition was open all week and the school was a hive of activity as many schools, parents, and members of the public visited the school to enjoy the exhibition.
