SCHOOL POR­TRAITS

First News - - CRAZY BUT TRUE -

A FA­MOUS artist is set to cre­ate a gi­ant por­trait fea­tur­ing thou­sands of Year 3 school­child­ren!

Year 3 pupils from ev­ery one of Lon­don’s 2,410 pri­mary schools will be in­vited to be spe­cially pho­tographed for the arty project.

Artist and film-maker Steve McQueen wants to cap­ture the ex­cite­ment, anx­i­ety and hope that young peo­ple ex­pe­ri­ence at the start of a new school year. He’ll do this with tra­di­tional class pho­to­graphs, where chil­dren sit or stand in rows along­side their teach­ers and teach­ing as­sis­tants.

The art­work is set to go on dis­play at Tate Bri­tain and around Lon­don in au­tumn 2019. Find out more at tateyear3project.org.uk.
