QE2 Pupils lead the way in repurposing artboards

And, they now have their own art gallery at Horsham station!

September 15, 2023

The Challenge

Pupils from the QE2 SEN School in Horsham were keen to reuse artboards when they were removed from the Bridge Art Gallery at the station.  Southern Coastal Maintenance team carefully removed the old artwork and stored the boards at their depot.





What we did

Key Impacts

The station art gallery has now been renamed 'Queen Elizabeth II Gallery'
The pupils will be responsible to installing and maintaining artwork
Whenever possible, they will repurpose old art boards

The pupils spent a morning at the station, installing some new artwork, all celebrating their namesake, Queen Elizabeth II.

The artwork had previously been created at the school, under the supervision of Penny Hoskins, art teacher.  A sign showing the name of the school was also installed.

When that task was done, the QE2 minibus went to the Maintenance depot, where Steph and Martin greeted them, and helped to load the old artboards into the minibus.  Then it was back to school for a well-deserved lunch.

The artwork at the station is mounted interpretations of King Charles, Queen Camilla. I can't express how proud I am of all our student's artwork. It is so impressive!!
