Pupils’ artwork displayed at exhibition
The artistic talents of young people were showcased at a school exhibition.
Chigwell School in High Road, Chigwell held its annual open junior art, design and technology exhibition on March 5.
More than 150 people attended the event which saw work submitted by 14 schools in the borough.
A spokesman said: “Our aim is to celebrate the achievements of young people and their teachers and there is no theme or prize.
“The majority of junior schools do not have dedicated exhibition areas and it is delightful to see the joy on the artists’ faces when they see their work on display.”
