Little Crackers’ Creative Talents Amaze At Inaugural Art Exhibition

On Wednesday 16 May Crackley Hall opened its doors for its very first Art Exhibition. Pupils from across the school, from Little Crackers Nursery up to Junior 6 revealed their amazing creative talents to stunned parents, friends and teachers.

The children’s work on display featured 268 different paintings inspired by art styles and techniques from around the world. They included artwork produced by our very own Nursery children, inspired by the Maasai of Eastern Africa.

Many parents and children attended the exhibition to view the framed art work mounted on display boards in the school hall. All were amazed at the talent on show with many remarking the pictures would grace any wall.

Head of Art, Paul Hubball, and Art Teacher, Susan Harris, from the Foundation’s senior school Princethorpe College were invited over to view the exhibition. They will be awarding Certificates of Merit to the paintings that particularly impressed them.

Mrs Harris commented, “The standard of work on show is outstanding, a huge variety of approaches and styles that has given every child a chance to shine. The use of colour is exceptional and It has been very hard to choose between them.”

Our thanks to Crackley Hall's Art Co-ordinator, Mrs Van de Zyl for organising the exhibition, the standard was incredible and it was a joy to view. Well done everyone!
