IT is home to some of the world's most famous modern artists.

And now a group of school pupils are to see their work hang in a self-curated exhibition in the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA).

Creative young people from Hollybrook Academy, a school for pupils with additional needs, will open their show on Friday.

Scribbles by Hollybrook is work created by the schools art department and sold to raise cash for the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity by enterprising business pupils.

Business education teacher Victor Cannon said: "We have had lots of successes with Scribbles so the pupils and I thought together about what to do next.

"And we had thought about finding somewhere to display the artworks in a real exhibitions.

"The pupils wrote to GoMA to ask if we could have a space there and were told it would be a two year wait.

"We hadn't forgotten about it so we wrote back to say the two years were up - could we have our exhibition now.

"And, suddenly, here we are."

Eight pupils will join Learning and Access curator Martin Craig to decide where to hang some of the artwork that will be part of Scribbles by Hollybrook.

They will also learn about the role of an exhibition designer and venue technician, seeing the work that goes into installing an exhibition in a major art gallery.

The Evening Times has told previously about the work of Scribbles, which is a social enterprise company.

Pupils were given the opportunity to take a salary from their efforts - but they decided to give it all to the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity, formerly Yorkhill Children's Charity.

Many of the pupils had been treated there at some point in their lives so it is a cause close to their hearts.

Victor says youngsters learn skills for life and work through taking part, not to mention seeing their confidence and self-esteem grow.

They have worked with auction house McTear's to sell their work and held a display of saleable work in St Enoch's Centre with frames donated by Ikea.

Glasgow Museums will introduce the young people who are part of Scribbles by Hollybrook to the many different roles that make up the wider creative industries sector.

A project team consisting of pupils and museums staff will select the most appropriate objects for display, design the exhibition layout, draft interpretation panels to accompany the artwork, plan the logistics and take part in the set up and promote the display.

The overall ambition is that the Business Studies students may be able to work towards achieving an SQA in Creative Industries.

Scribbles by Hollybrook will feature around 30 works, comprising mainly paintings, drawings and prints.

They will be displayed on Balcony 1 from Friday, May 13 and runs until Sunday, May 29.
