This Spring Term we are working with Birmingham Museums (Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery)
and 60 Year 4 students from Mansfield Green Academy.
In partnership with Birmingham Museums “Collecting Birmingham” programme,
were working on a wonderful project with Mansfield Green Academy.
Students are curating and producing their own ‘Pop Up’ exhibition in school inspired by the city’s collections.
Through gallery visits, specially designed resources, drawing, photography

During the project students have an opportunity to :

Students are working with Alice Halden – Birmingham Museums and Jacqui Grange – visual artist
