SCHOOL ARTISTS ARE BROUGHT TO BOOK.

VISITING the library is a colourful experience thanks to a new exhibition.

Primary Colours is an art project run by Knowsley council at Huyton library to link art with education, with 16 primary schools in the borough taking part.

Knowsley galleries officer, Jo Dry, said: "We wanted all the schools in the area to take part in a schools' exhibition but we couldn't afford to put professional artists in every school to do workshops.

"So we met with teachers and gave them plenty of ideas, trying to encourage them to do something more interesting than two dimensional work."

A year six group at Blacklow Brow primary school in Huyton had a great time creating their works of art.

Heidi Langton, 11, said:

"I enjoyed helping make the models."

The exhibition runs until March 10. For more details, call 0151-443 5617.
