Gallery event for Pendeen pupils
PUPILS at Pendeen School guest curated an exhibition at Penlee House Gallery and Museum as part of an educational partnership at the weekend.
The children, from Years 5 and 6, had been discovering more about west Penwith's rich mining heritage – inspired by a new display by artist Graham Sutherland.
Working alongside learning experts, staff from Geevor Tin Mine and the gallery on Saturday, the youngsters studied the works, wrote labels and found out more about life underground.
The current exhibition features Sutherland's From Darkness Into Light collection, which looks at his time spent observing the industry's war efforts in June 1942.

Teacher Sally Emery said the children were given a great experience: "Not only has this project given the children an insight into Cornish mining, it has also enriched their literacy skills and we will be able to build on ideas from the project."
The initiative was one of a number of activities and events held by Geevor and Penlee House using lottery funding.
