Some of the children's comments are also displayed on the walls. Iona, from Year Six, said, “I chose the Suffragette Banner because I feel strongly about their work and about everyone’s right to vote.”
Eilonwy, from Year Four, said, “I will be proud to see my artwork displayed in a real art gallery.”
Abigail, from Year Five, said, “I chose Dr Fothergill because it is detailed with nice colours and I wanted a challenge. When I was in the process of drawing I was very proud of myself and of Newport.”
The challenge sought to introduce young people and their families to their local art, culture and history.
If you want to have a look at the children’s work, the exhibition is being held in the Art Gallery on the third floor of Newport Museum and Art Gallery, in the city’s town centre.
