More than 160 students from all year groups of Thomas Gainsborough School have been exhibiting more than 200 pieces in 46 shopfronts, cafes and vacant retail units.

Sudbury As Our Canvas features everything from paintings and drawings to textiles and photographs, with the project designed to bring the creativity and talent of the young people into the community in a visible and engaging way.

Students from the school's sixth form have taken leading roles in the development of the project as part of their work for the prestigious gold level Art Award.
