The walls are adorned with images of expressive portraits, David Hockney-style photo collages and all sorts of things that the pupils associate with their lives, such as their bicycles.

At the “Meet the Artist” event, which was held on a school day rather than the usual Saturday, large crowds attended to view the work.
