Last weekend Aldro hosted an event that celebrates everything that is exciting and wonderful about children’s art. The Aldro Celebration of Art is an annual event and this year we had a record number of schools taking part. They were Rydes Hill Preparatory School, St Mary’s Infant School Shackleford, Holy Trinity Pewley Down, Shottermill Junior School and Wimbledon Common Prep. The prize giving buzzed with excitement and it was lovely to see children cheering enthusiastically when their friends won prizes.
The judges said that they were overwhelmed by the standard of art from all the schools. They were impressed by the freedom of expression and the way children’s creativity is allowed to blossom without constraints. They said that there was much work they would have loved to take away with them, and live with in their homes.
Congratulations to all the children who took part and we look forward to seeing many of you again next year!
