One of the first schools to sign up as a Culture School, Edward Worlledge decided to the visual arts would be their focus.  Local artist, Genevieve Rudd, well-known at the museum for her excellent work with engaging young people in the arts, was selected to work as a partner with the school.

The school had also identified resilience as a skills they wanted their pupils to develop and Genevieve set to creating a project that would encompass both this and visual arts. It was decided that 10 pupils, identified by the school as most likely to benefit, would work with Genevieve for an afternoon a week over a period of six weeks.
