The Lightbox and The Arts Society Mayford are once again very excited to announce the Centrepiece project for 2022, which is a unique opportunity for students to showcase their artwork in our award-winning gallery and develop their knowledge of art.

For Centrepiece 2022, schools will be invited to create original works of art inspired by 'Star Turn' by John Rattenbury-Skeaping from The Ingram Collection. The application process is open now to all Surrey based schools, but priority will be given to schools within the Woking, Guildford, Surrey Heath, Runnymede and Elmbridge boroughs. Up to seven Schools will then be selected to take part in the project and exhibition.

Being involved in the Centrepiece project will provide opportunities for students to develop their confidence and creativity.

Centrepiece is a great opportunity to develop student’s wellbeing and social skills. Through engaging creatively with our collection they will develop the ability to form and express opinions and to take ownership of their learning. The project continues back at School providing the opportunity for students to develop leadership skills by teaching others what they have learnt.

Applications must be made by an official member of school staff. You can download the application form here or for more details please contact our Learning and Engagement Officer, Emily Watkins, at [email protected] or phone 01483 737807. The closing date for applications is 5.00pm, Monday 4th October 2021.

The Lightbox would like to thank The Ingram Collection and The Arts Society Mayford for their support of this project, with particular thanks to Jan Rubin.

This workshop can be used to fulfil Artsmark criteria.
