The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum and Museum of Oxford Youth Art Project

February-March 2012

The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum and The Museum of Oxford worked in partnership on this 4 week project alongside artist Dionne Freeman and 7 pupils from Wood Green School, Witney.

The aim of the project was to work with the young people to produce an artwork which was inspired by the Soldiers of Oxfordshire exhibition Children and War.

During four half-day sessions, the young people explored the exhibition and its themes, handled objects relating to the exhibition, learnt various artistic techniques and worked together as a team to produce the finished artwork.

At the end of the final session the young people were all presented with a certificate to mark their achievement. Their finished artwork remains on display at The Oxfordshire Museum next to theChildren and War exhibition.
