We had a great experience working with Gill and Graham. The instructions were very clear and it was fantastic to see all the children's pictures framed and set up for our Art Exhibition - very professional. It was amazing for the children to come and see all their work on display during the day, they were so proud. Later we invited parents to look round and buy the framed artwork, which also helped with our school fundraising efforts. A good result all round.
Marie, PTFA, Hook-with-Warsash CofE Academy
We had a fantastic experience with Images Art Exhibitions. The children, parents and teachers have all asked for it to happen again this year. It is a lovely opportunity for children to see their work on display and take pride in all they have achieved. We can't wait to see what they create this year!
Maisie Scobie, Art Subject Leader, Kew Riverside Primary School, Kew, Surrey
From start to finish this was a very efficient process ensuring that the art exhibition ran smoothly. The Images staff were very friendly and obliging. Parents and children were highly delighted with the outcome, resulting in a 'wow!' moment when entering the hall.
Hill Top Academy, Doncaster
It was wonderful to see the children's hard work displayed. They were so proud of their art and parents were greatly complimentary about the gallery. Heather was easy to communicate with which was important because I had taken over the project from a colleague late-on. I would fully recommend this project to others.
Warren Primary Academy, Nottingham
Very clear information - Heather was always responsive via text and email if we had any questions. The art was displayed really well and children and parents were impressed with the quality.
Art Coordinator, Richard Bonington Primary and Nursery School, Nottingham
We had very positive feedback from parents, children and staff about the quality of the exhibition.
Newbold Verdon Primary School, Leicestershire
We would like to thank Images for helping us create such a successful Art Exhibition. The communication, flexibility and assistance was excellent and helped make it an easy and enjoyable experience. Our pupils were so excited to see their artwork so nicely framed, it boosted their self-esteem and gave them something to be proud of.
Art Coordinator, Featherstone Primary & Nursery School, Southall, Middlesex
Pupils comments - I was astonished when I saw how good our artwork looked when it was mounted and framed. Can we have another art exhibition next year?
Very helpful and an exciting event for all involved-parents, staff and most importantly the children.
St Mary's School, Slough
Jane could not have made the process, from start to finish, any easier. Absolutely everything was thought of and it made school's efforts so easy. The feedback from children, staff and parents was all so positive and the children loved seeing their artwork on display in the school 'gallery'.
Ashton House School, Isleworth, Middlesex
We found the experience of our whole school art exhibition extremely positive. Parents commented on how much they enjoyed it and every pupil in the school had an opportunity to present a personalised piece they had created. This was a great platform to get families in the school and talking about pupil learning. Thank you Lindsay and Gerry for all you did for us - looking forward to the next show when it comes.
Miss Peterson, Deputy Head Teacher, Forthill Primary School
Images could not have made the process from start to finish any easier. Absolutely everything was thought of and it made our school's efforts so easy. The feedback from children, staff and parents were all so positive and the children loved seeing their artwork on display in the school 'gallery'.
Rebecca Gillis, Art Coordinator, Aston House School, Isleworth
Very helpful. An exciting event for all involved - parents, staff and, most importantly, the children.
Sammie Sharples, Art Subject Leader, St. Mary's School, Slough
I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Graham and Gill Hardy for helping us to host our first whole school art exhibition! They made every step easy for us and were quick in replying to the vast amount of questions we had! We were impressed by the high level of organisation from Images Art in the lead up to the show and on the day. They really had thought of everything! The event ran smoothly and many commented on the professional feel that the show had. From speaking to the children they were so proud of their achievements. A truly wonderful day! Thanks again!
Rachel Allwright, Art Coordinator, English Martyrs RC Primary, Reading
We would like to thank Lindsay and Gerry from Images for helping us to run such a successful art event to raise funds for 'Children 1st'. The teachers and ourselves were amazed at the simplicity of the process and how efficiently it was carried out. Images Art were extremely helpful at explaining any queries and their organised approach allowed us to run the event with minimal stress. Not only was this an incredibly successful fundraiser, it was a special event for the children in the junior school and the impressive turnout of family and friends who were amazed at the quality of the artwork on show and the way it was presented. We would not hesitate to recommend Images Art to any other school wishing to put on a unique event to celebrate their pupils' talent whilst raising money on the side. We are eager to make an Images Art Exhibition a regular feature in our school calendar.
Carys Stirling, Senior Pupil Enterprise Group, The High School of Dundee
I particularly liked the presentation of the children's work and how the classes were mixed to give a real exhibition feel. The music in the background added to the mood. The pupils' reactions were so positive and they really valued the experience.
Katie Hutchings, Art Coordinator, Toton Banks Road Infant School, Nottinghamshire
We were pleased to have the opportunity to showcase a piece of artwork by every child in our school using Images Art. The process was easy to administer with all the paper provided and clear instructions and examples of what themes work best, from pictures of ourselves to prints of butterflies and silhouetted landscapes. We had the bonus of displaying it in a marquee on a lovely Summers day, all carefully mounted and framed by John. Together with the Year 6 helpers it was presented as an art gallery with a printed guide. By tying it in with our sports afternoon we sold over 80% of the pictures and raised over £300 for our school charity. Very, many thanks to John for his efficiency.
Amanda Bembridge, Art Coordinator, Kingscourt School, Hampshire
A super exhibition with very little extra effort. It is a very easy way to raise the profile of art within the school. We were particularly pleased with the contribution it made to our Artsmark and the way the children could use it towards their Arts Award by choosing work they liked and explaining why they were inspired by it. The older children loved the quiz supplied by Images, it made them look closely at all the work exhibited.
Juliet Turner, Art Subject Leader, St. Helen's College, Hillingdon
The Images art gallery proved to be an excellent experience for our pupils, parents and staff. The children were totally engaged in the activities and it provided us with a focus on creation and imagination. We had a range of artistic skills used including computer generated art and our parents gave very positive feedback. Denise was very easy to work with and the whole process was professionally managed throughout. I would highly recommend the gallery.
Eddie McGuigan, St. Michael's RC Primary School, Chatham
We would like to thank you for your help with our exhibition; it was a great success and enjoyed by parents, children and teachers alike. Personally, I was really pleased to see how proud all of the pupils were of their work and appreciated having readymade presents for Father's Day.
Liz Stratford, FOFM Treasurer, Four Marks C of E Primary School, Alton, Hampshire
We found the whole experience, from initial enquiry to final invoice, to be extremely well organised, efficient and worry free. You were always really helpful, accommodating and on the other end of the phone whenever we needed you no matter how trivial our query. We would hold an art exhibition with you every year if we could but will really look forward to our next one.
Torkington Primary School, Stockport
So easy and it raised funds for the school with no costs. A great event.
Mr P. Buxton, Headmaster, Caradog Primary School, Aberdare
We keep getting positive feedback on the exhibition which is a nice compliment for all of us. It's gratifying to hear such praise.
Slated Row School, Milton Keynes
Our Art Exhibition was a huge success-bringing together pupils from three schools in a celebration of inclusion. The art work was creatively displayed and provided a clear focal point to how we meet children's needs. Throughout the project the service provided by Images was excellent. Resources were dropped off to the three schools involved ensuring smooth running of the joint venture. All literature was tailored to the needs of our project and Rosemary was professional and efficient in managing our requests.
Mrs G. Graham, Deputy Head Crookfur Primary, Glasgow
An amazing experience for our children, their parents and the teachers. It was lovely for the children to see their hard work exhibited professionally. Well done Jane and thank you.
Mrs Fidler, Ashgrove School, Bromley, Kent
John offers a fantastic service to schools which children, teachers and parents loved. I would highly recommend Images whether to celebrate art or to fund raise (or both). Friendly and reliable.
Headteacher, Stedham Primary School, Midhurst, West Sussex
We were delighted as a school to have the very professional and efficient assistance of Images. The whole school were simply thrilled to see every child's work showcased to a very high standard. The set up via 'Images' was the first of its kind at Ravenscourt and we thank you so much Jane!
Rachel Alleyne, Head of Art, Ravenscourt Park Prep School, Hammersmith, London
Using Images Art is so simple and easy. Denise is not only a wealth of information she is also practical and understands what issues school may have in putting on an art exhibition. All of our questions were answered (even ones we hadn't thought of). The children loved seeing their own work on display and the event was a huge success with parents and staff alike. We had a great exhibition and made some money too. I would recommend Images to any school.
Helen Davies, Milton Court Primary School, Sittingbourne
I felt the exhibition was incredibly powerful for the children to see their work organised in such a beautiful way. It produced the opportunity to celebrate everyone's achievements. Children were able to articulate the process they went through to produce their art. It was just simply fantastic.
Art Coordinator, Awsworth Primary and Nursery School, Nottinghamshire
I would like to thank you for the excellent Art Exhibition that you arranged with us. The feedback from the parents has been very positive and many parents and grandparents were stunned at the quality of the work on display. Thank you for making the whole process work so smoothly and for the professionalism that you demonstrated throughout. I would be happy to recommend your services to other schools in the future.
Mrs Clare Fletcher, Head Teacher, North Walsham Infant School, Norfolk
We were extremely pleased with the professional standard of the completed artwork. Parents and children loved the finished framed product. Thanks for making it very straightforward and hassle free. We will definitely be using Images again.
Peover Superior Primary School, Cheshire
Our parents were so supportive of this special exhibition and Images made it so easy.
Mr P Davies, Headteacher, Cwmdare Primary School, Aberdare, Mid Glamorgan
Thank you so much for last Friday. It was great and we've had some lovely comments from parents. The pictures sold well and parents are still buying. Thank you for all your hard work.
Alice Dallow, Art Coordinator, Tenbury Primary School, Tenbury, Wells
We had a very successful Art Exhibition with Images. From start to finish we were delighted with all the help and information that we received. The parents and pupils had a very positive experience and the commission we received surpassed our expectations.
Mrs R McLeod, Principal, Ralston Primary, Paisley
The Art Exhibition provided a real wow factor for the pupils and the reaction of the parents to their children's work was amazing. It was simple to organise yet had a huge impact.
Cavendish Close Infant School, Derby
Our first ever Art Exhibition! Images Art inspired us all to experiment with new art skills and techniques. We have all gained a lot more confidence. Most important of all, it gave the children a real buzz seeing their pictures exhibited.
Marcelle Steenkamp, Art Coordinator, Montem Academy, Slough, Berkshire
The children gained a great deal from the experience, sharing ideas and taking pride in their achievements especially the value given to their work in the exhibition. The response from parents and friends was fantastic, a resounding success echoed by everyone and raising valuable extra funds (over £500).
Mike Peace, Head Teacher, Frimley C of E School, Surrey
Can I also take this opportunity to say what a fantastic fund raising idea this is and that the way you organised it and set it up is incredibly professional. It made it very easy for us!
Anna Strong, Chairman, Friends of North Farnborough Infant School, Hampshire
It was a pleasure to work with Images. The whole process, from the initial enquiry through to the actual exhibition was managed in a friendly and highly professional way. It was a big challenge - the largest exhibition Images had ever done with 750 works of art. But Kate was confident that the project was manageable and it was. Images are highly organised and take on most of the workload. Children, staff and parents were surprised and delighted by the professionalism of the exhibition. The school sold a huge number of works of art and raised a significant amount of money. I would recommend working with Images to any school.
Sue Webb, Assistant Headteacher, Priory School, Slough
The Art Exhibition arranged with Images at Benchill was a huge success. The children, of all age groups, were fully enthused to produce a piece of work and were amazed at what their paintings looked like when framed. Parents were thrilled and the evening of the exhibition saw a huge turnout of parents. There was the added benefit of making some profits for the school, but for Benchill, the main benefit was building the children's self esteem and the joy of seeing the parents being so active with their children. On 'overloaded' teachers there was no extra work as Images did the framing, setting up, dismantling and clerical chores during the evening. I can thoroughly recommend Images and will certainly be inviting them back in the future.
Dave Smith, Headteacher, Benchill Primary, Manchester
Our Art Exhibition, which was held over two days in March, was very successful and much enjoyed by staff, children and parents. The children enjoyed creating the pictures and were clearly very proud to see them professionally mounted and on public display. In addition, the event made the front page of the local newspaper, and we also made nearly £300 for our school funds. We plan to repeat the event every two years.
David Garrard, Headteacher, Smitham Primary School, Coulsdon, Surrey
I just want to write a personal note to you, to let you know how much I appreciated all the hard work that you put into making our Art Exhibition a great success. The whole event was extremely well managed and organised. Everyone enjoyed seeing their own work or their children's work on display. I felt particularly proud! The exhibition was super and the money raised means that the school can acquire new art materials.
Jo Bateman, Art Coordinator, St John's Primary School, Hoveton, Norfolk
The children and their parents were enthralled by their work being displayed in such a noble way. As for the staff, we cannot believe how easy it was for us. As you so rightly said to me, we were not required to do anything we would not be doing anyway. To be paid at the end of it all was a great bonus. I'm also glad we arranged the exhibition to coincide with one of our parent's nights. This guaranteed a first class response. The atmosphere in school was an absolute joy.
Mark McQueen, Head Teacher, Ursuline Catholic Primary School, Blundellsands, Liverpool
I would just like to thank you for the fantastic exhibition we had with Images. We chose your idea to celebrate our school's 95th birthday and the response was fantastic. The whole operation ran so smoothly from start to finish and the only input needed from the teachers was delivering a couple of art lessons. It created a buzz and excitement during the whole project. I would gladly recommend your company to any school or organisation wishing to offer something original for their children.
P. Kinsella, Head Teacher, Beach Road Primary School
At West Blatchington Infants School, we were very pleased with our Art Exhibition organised so efficiently by Images. The children were delighted to see their work presented in such a professional way and the comments from parents and staff were very complimentary. It was also pleasing to be able to raise some extra funds and we shall use this to buy art materials. Thank you once again for providing us with a wonderful opportunity to exhibit the children's work.
Carol Grey, Head Teacher, West Blatchington Infants, Hove, Sussex
Professional looking, well laid out, stunning to view. All the comments from pupils, staff and parents were positive. They found it a very unique event and a way to celebrate all pupils' masterpieces. They have even asked when we will be doing it again. It has been a memorable and enjoyable event.
Jo Wootten Art Coordinator, Summer Lane Primary, Barnsley
Many thanks to Images for organising an art exhibition at St Luke's. It was a great way to raise money for school funds, with very little effort on the part of the school. The children and their parents were delighted to see their artwork professionally mounted and framed - and the exhibition was a huge success.
Sharon Cowey, Head Teacher, St Luke's C E Primary School, Formby, Liverpool
All very well organised and looked fantastic. Thank you!
Art Coordinator, Bramcote Hills Primary School, Nottingham
Thank you. It was an excellent event which you organised superbly. The children enjoyed doing the work for the exhibition and seeing their work professionally displayed. Well done!
Mr Fellowes, Headteacher, St Thomas' Primary School, Kilnhurst, Rotherham
Thank you so much for a wonderful exhibition. Everyone has spoken very highly of it! It ran like clockwork. A great idea!
Zoe Whitworth, Headteacher, Bradley Infant and Nursery School, Huddersfield
Very positive experience - promoted art throughout the school which was our primary objective.
Tina Barry, Art Coordinator, St John's RC Primary, Normanton, Wakefield
Parents, children and staff really enjoyed the very successful and attractive Art Exhibition. Images had planned for every aspect of the event.
Kathy Offer, Head Teacher, Hawthorns First School, Worthing, Sussex
I have never seen, or imagined I would ever see, an art show put on by a primary school in such a polished and professional manner.
John Heritage, Chairman of Governors, Little Chalfont Primary School, Bucks
Thank you very much for organising the art exhibition so beautifully. The children were thrilled to see their work in the gallery and parents were rightly very proud.
Mrs Alison Passmore, Head Teacher, St James C of E Primary School, Oldbury
I am writing to tell you how happy we were with the Art Exhibition. The children had a lot of fun producing their art work and then seeing it so beautifully mounted. I am sure there were many families who had a lovely Christmas gift of their child/grandchild's work. Thank you once again.
Mrs Jones, Head Teacher, St Mary's RC Primary School, Portslade, Sussex
Seeing all 320 of the children's pictures so professionally displayed on parents' evenings was a great thrill for children, parents and staff. The children were excited and appreciative of the framed artwork on display and gave them the sense that their work was valued. It was a real joy to see the children's enthusiasm as each class viewed their handiwork before the exhibition opened. What was most impressive was the interest and appreciation the children showed for each other's work. The whole project had really helped to heighten the children's awareness of art. During the parents evenings there was a continuous stream of positive comments from parents about the range and quality of the children's work. "Did you really paint that picture? It's really good." "What a marvellous way to show off the children's work." "It is a real plus to have my child's work framed. Worth every penny to have it presented this way." The whole process from start to finish was well organised which lead to it being such a successful event. We will definitely ask Images to do it again. The funds raised, which is an added bonus, will be spent on further art materials for the children. Once again many thanks for all your efforts in ensuring the Art Gallery ran so effortlessly and successfully from our point of view.
Tony Crompton, Headteacher, Stokes C of E Primary School, Blaby, Leicester
We've now enjoyed two Images exhibitions and must say they are a brilliant way to celebrate the children's artwork and to involve parents in a very popular event. On both occasions, your expert organisation made the whole process run smoothly from start to finish. It was all very easy for us and we're looking forward to seeing you again.
Alison Edwards, Headteacher, The Woodville School, Leatherhead, Surrey
The exhibition was a marvellous success. It gave the children an opportunity to freeze-frame a stage in their childhood which will undoubtedly be revisited in years to come.
Fergal Collins, St. Francis Xavier School, Coolmine, Castleknock, Dublin
The response from the children, parents and wider community was amazingly positive… The school's inspector commented that it had been the best exhibition of children's work that he had ever seen in a primary school.
Jackie Stevens, Art Coordinator, Hampton Junior School, Middlesex
Your company provided us with a very hassle free fundraising opportunity and a brilliant way to celebrate children's achievements in art… the individual pictures were professionally presented and the exhibition ran very smoothly… we would be very interested in using Images again and would appreciate any additional information in the future.
Susan Ward, Art Coordinator, Leighton Primary School, Peterborough
Everyone at Howard was extremely impressed with the quality of the Art Exhibition they held recently. The quality of service from Images was 1st Class. Other than the children completing their art work everything was done for us to the very highest quality. We are already looking forward to holding another exhibition in the future. Earning money for the school was an added bonus.
John Robinson, Headteacher, Howard Primary School, Croydon, Surrey
The children, parents and guardians and teachers all enjoyed the exhibition very much… their work was so beautifully presented and displayed, making it look very professional… their framed work is something that can be treasured by all for now and in the future.
Helen Horn, Friends of All Saints Primary, March, Cambridgeshire
Our recent Images Art Exhibition was professionally organised to a very high standard and required virtually no time commitment on our part. The children had a wonderful time looking at their pictures, seeing their work on display was a real boost to their self esteem. Our parents now have a great memento of a wonderful day - and we even got to raise school funds at the same time!
Bruce Dale, Headteacher, Mendip Green Primary School, Weston-Super-Mare
Plenty of time to organise staff. Fantastic reminders of what we needed to do and when. The exhibition looked very professional and the children loved finding their paintings.
Art Coordinator, Jesse Gray Primary School, Nottingham
Thank you very much for a very successful art exhibition. We received very positive feedback from the parents and we found your organisation to be very helpful. We look forward to a second exhibition in a couple of years' time.
Diana Gardner, Art Coordinator, Dr Radcliffes C of E Primary School, Steeple Aston
The recent Arts Exhibition was a wonderful opportunity for displaying the children's own artwork in a professional "Gallery" environment. Images is a highly organised business, which we have no hesitation in recommending.
Liz Walsh, Headteacher, St Clements RC Primary School, Ewell, Surrey
