Six children from Wellington Primary School in Bow had their artwork shown off at one of our Eastern region’s developments.
Giant versions of their pieces, designed around the theme “what Bow means to me”, have been printed onto the hoardings at our St Clements development on the site of the old St Clements Hospital.
The pupils were invited to enter a piece of artwork before the best six were chosen from each year group. The young artists – whose ages range from 6 to 11 – gathered at the development site to view their work. We also donated £200 to the school as a thank you.
Mandy Kellegher, deputy head teacherat Wellington Primary School, said: “The children were excited about the project and the idea that their art work might be displayed in their local area.
“They were very engaged by the topic ‘What Bow means to me’ and were keen to include the arts skills they have learnt in school such as printing, painting, collage and drawing.”
Karen Roake, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes’ Eastern, added: “The judges had to choose from some lovely and very original interpretations of the title.
“All of the entries were very colourful. They also had to take into account of what would look good scaled up on the hoardings. It was difficult to choose the winners.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
