Whilst out Googling this evening, I found this high school newsletter:
National Portrait Gallery Project
A group of Year 13 students, studying English Language and Art, were invited last term to work with the National Portrait Gallery and the Graves Gallery in Sheffield to create a full exhibition.
For 12 weeks students gave up their free time to read about the fascinating life of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, an extraordinary 18th century traveller and writer, to develop ideas for an exhibition, which would appeal to a younger audience.
The students wrote the text panels and designed several methods of exhibiting the portraits, working with the curator, graphic designers and marketing department.
The finished exhibition runs until June at the Graves Gallery and is definitely worth a visit.
Among the students praised for their hard work and commitment is Valerie Thulambo.
