School Prints revives a groundbreaking scheme set up in the 1940s to supply original, high-quality contemporary art to primary schools. Six British artists; Martin Creed, Jeremy Deller, Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten, Haroon Mirza and Rose Wylie;  have been invited to create limited edition prints that will be given to the Wakefield primary schools taking part in the scheme.

To coincide with the exhibition, we are delighted to offer for sale  series of the limited edition prints, kindly donated by the artists. All profits raised by the sales of the prints will fund a full engagement programme with the participating schools.

'Perhaps this is a self-portrait of me as a young girl? The shiny leg of the boot, neat and wavy like the long black plaits I wore every day. The grown-up high heel made of bricks is the Victorian school building we surreptitiously carved our names into the walls of with little stones from the playground floor. And the clouds rolling in blue sky are what I would watch out of the tall windows as I listened a little, daydreamed a little, during school assemblies, maths lessons, stories of how volcanoes are formed and practised joined-up handwriting. As a kid I didn't know such a thing as being an artist was possible, perhaps as unlikely as making a portrait of oneself as a boot? It fits me perfectly.' - Anthea Hamilton
