Prison Arts Project work on display

Christmas paintings and craftwork by inmates at the Isle of Man's prison will be on view at Castle Rushen from today (Saturday).

Several pieces of work completed during creative classes will feature in an exhibition.

The work includes large festive paintings and children's games, after Manx National Heritage worked with prisoners on a number of projects ranging from educational talks to the Prison Arts Project.

Education manager at the Jurby facility Judy Jackson says prisoners see it as a way of giving something back to the community.
