Artspiration celebrates children's art with exhibition and workshop

Youngsters got arty at the Nicholson Centre at Artspiration's annual exhibition.

The drawing and painting school for children held a prize giving on Thursday, July 24.

"We had some beaming faces after the prize distribution ceremony and it was a lovely celebration of all the works the kids had been working on for a year or so," said founder Shalini Nayak.

It was attended by Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Richard Kellaway, his wife Mary-Lou Kellaway and Art on the Street co-director Marie Leonard as well as about 100 others.

The exhibition of 150 pieces of art ran across Friday, July 25 and Saturday, July 26 and there was also a workshop and art swap at the stall.

A total of 47 pieces of artwork were swapped with pieces made by children from Dharavi Art Room in India as part of an exchange programme.

Youngsters also painted 32 canvases in a painting workshop on the Saturday.
