An underwater world has taken over the gallery at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts.
Models of mermaids and pirates made by around 950 primary school children across the area can be seen swimming around the watery world.
Artist Benedict Romain visited 11 primary schools to help the children create the watery creatures.
At the top of the gallery sits sea monster 'Splashy', named by six-year-old Lucy Palfery, who was made by visitors at Art on the Street in June.
The gallery also has a 'junk coral' sculpture, which people can add to on their visit to the Altwood Road venue.
The exhibition runs until early September.
