Williamson: Bidston Ave School Exhibition

30 June – Sunday 27 September 2015

Year 3 children from Bidston Ave Primary School have created zentangles, inspired by artist Paul Klee. ‘A drawing is like taking a dot for a walk’. A zentangle is an image made up of several patterns.

The children chose the theme of marine life & linked it into the local area & the River Mersey, creating individual & collaborative patterned fish in the style of a zentangle. The 2nd part of the exhibition is based on the oldest standing building in Merseyside: Birkenhead Priory, with “stained glass” windows, inspired by the Priory Chapter House and the story of the Birkenhead.

There is a stark contrast between the zentangle fish – using black & white and the windows – using bright, bold colours. They selected some works from the Williamson Art Gallery catalogue to enhance the exhibition.
