‘AMAZING’ artwork by Ilminster youngsters has gone on display in the town’s cultural centre.

Greenfylde C of E First School unveiled its latest crop of young painters, drawers and mosaic creators last week.

The inspiring art is set to remain on show at The Arts Centre at The Meeting House, Ilminster, until May 11.

The exhibition includes work from every child in the school and was opened by the Mayor of Ilminster, Cllr Julie Fowler.

Claire oaten, Greenfylde headteacher, said: “Art, whilst a key subject in our curriculum, is also an important way for our children to develop their creative potential and see beyond ‘the image’ to the emotions and character that underpin all of their creativity.

“Our children work in a variety of medium and every piece is celebrated as an achievement for our pupil recognising that there is no right and wrong in art, only individual interpretation.”

The exhibition also included two mosaics which have been created with Richard Godden of PlayArt and were funded by the school’s prize for being award the Fairtrade Foundations Fairtrade Fortnight National Primary School last year and these will eventually go on display at the front of Greenfylde.

Mrs Oaten added: “Thanks go to the school community, especially the subject leads Claire Harris and Laura Caines and to all at the Arts Centre for their support in setting up and running the exhibition and plans are already in place to book for 2021.”
