Bynea County Primary Exhibition

A selection of work from the A Place of my Own project with pupils from Bynea County Primary School is now showing at Llanelly House, until May.


Lead artist Pip Lewis, project Facilitator Cheryl Kitt, and Project Assistant Tangwen Roberts joined pupils, staff, parents and the Mayor’s representative to celebrate the opening of the exhibition on Tuesday 12 April 2016.

The pupils were pleased to see their work on display and explained to their audience what they had done in the each workshop, before enjoying some Welsh cakes and having a photo with the Mayor’s representative, who was very impressed:

Multimedia Photo Portraits

In our final workshop we finished colouring the background of our first set of black and white photos, and carried on working with emotions and colour to create more multimedia self-portraits.

This week we used larger copies of our photographs, cutting our second poses out and sticking them onto a piece of white paper.

Using three new colours, to reflect the emotions in our poses, we designed our own backgrounds around the photo to create a new portrait.

We covered our third set of photos with tracing paper and traced around the outline of our poses with a fine-tipped black pen.

It was a bit fiddly but we were pleased with the drawings.

We are looking forward to sharing a selection of our work at the exhibition in Llanelli House on 8 December and we also hope to use our portraits for an anti-bullying project at school.

First up


Pupils from Maes Y Morfa Primary Community School came back to Llanelly House with their parents and school staff to celebrate the opening of an exhibition of their work.

The exhibition, which sits alongside Joshua Reynolds’s portrait of Sir John Stepney, will run for the next month and includes a framed artwork made by each of the 8 pupils who participated, as well as a description of the 4 week project.
