Neil welcomes pupil's art to Turner Contemporary
TV STAR Neil Buchanan was the special guest as groups of children from across Thanet unveiled their art at Turner Contemporary on Tuesday.
Primary school pupils from Northdown, Bromstone, Dame Janet and Drapers Mill showed their work alongside exhibitions by JMW Turner and Hamish Fulton at the Margate gallery.
The show is part of the national Great Art Quest project, which aims to introduce children to the visual arts by working with local artist Tracey Falcon and storyteller Emily Parrish on pieces inspired by the gallery's recent exhibition Nothing In The World But Youth.
Award-winning Art Attack presenter Mr Buchanan trained himself as an artist after being rejected from art school.

He attended the opening as an ambassador for the Prince's Foundation for Children and The Arts, which ran the project with selected galleries across England.
Mr Buchanan said: "I believe there is an artist in every single one of us.
"Art shouldn't be highbrow and inaccessible and that's why initiatives such as the Great Art Quest are so fantastic.
"Amazing galleries such as the Turner Contemporary open the doors to young people to see and to encourage children to try it themselves."
