Children from two local primary schools, Bell Farm and Burhill, have emerged as winners in the National Chairman’s Young Arts Competition 2017. Its theme – ‘Precious’- was reflected in an ingeniously diverse range of 33 artworks including sculptures, drawings, photographs, pottery and collages.
The winners in the 8-10 Years Category were six Year 5 children attending Burhill Primary School who had submitted a group entry of Queen Victoria’s Crown forming a mosaic of nine decorated tiles. Also successful were two 11 year old pupils from Bell Farm Primary School who were Highly Commended for their entries – a colourful sculpture of a baby and an intricate treasure chest.
This was the first time local schools participated in the National Chairman’s Young Arts Competition and we are delighted with their success and the quality of the artworks produced. Our congratulations to everybody involved in this project.
