Featuring more than 250 pieces of artwork, the exhibition initially opened to pupils and their families for a private viewing, before opening to the public the next day.

In total, more than 350 guests attended the private viewing, before the public showing welcomed more than 100 people.

Sally Fields, events coordinator at DEMAT, said: “We were delighted with the amount of high-quality artwork presented for the exhibition. Even more amazing was the fact that the artists were all under 11 years old. The wonderfully warm reception we had from our visitors and the excitement of our artists seeing their work on display led to a thoroughly joyful and successful event.”
