Young Arts Project - 2007/8

As part of the NADFAS Young Arts Programme, Cranleigh DFAS in Surrey have sponsored a competition at Ewhurst Church of England Infant School on the theme of the Natural World. Every pupil produced a painting and a ceramic piece. The finished work was displayed at a stunning exhibition organised by the PTA and was judged by local artist, Alex Cresswell.

The sponsorship money was used to help buy top quality clay and also display frames for all the paintings. Technical advice and the use of a firing kiln was generously provided by the ceramics department at Cranleigh School. A sale of the finished work to proud parents and grandparents raised money to help replace the school's own ancient kiln.
