The Great Kirklees Railway Exhibition with The Children’s Art School

4th September 2018 - 20th November 2018

School children have produced 100 large-scale paintings that are exhibited throughout Our Biennale on the platforms at train stations along the Penistone Line and at Huddersfield Station.

Working with a poet and visual artist, the children and young people created poetry and paintings exploring light and dark. They have delved into the local history linked to the railways, geography, landscape and mythology, in particular the myths and legends of the dragon at Castle Hill.

The artwork on each station creates a visual narrative for those travelling by train through the stations.  The project aims to bring colour and life to places that currently feel somewhat run down, to place art in public spaces and to draw attention to the Biennale.

Read about the paintings by children from Honley Junior School going on display at Honley Train Station here.

The rest of the schools involved in the project who have their work exhibited include Thurstonland Endowed VE First School, Netherthong Primary School, Farnley Tyas First School, Scholes Primary School, Royds Hall Community School and Holme Primary School.
