Paintings, sculptures and collages produced by inmates at Feltham Young Offenders Institution are going on display at the home of the old masters, the National Gallery in London.

The young artists - all aged between 18 and 21 - took part in a project called Inside Art while they were either on remand or serving sentences. The gallery's Outreach Officer, Emma Rehm, explains what they learned.

Unless stated otherwise, all art work produced by inmates at Feltham Young Offenders' Institution, west London.
The works will be on display at the National Gallery between 8 February and 25 April 2010.
