TWO Children from Peterhead had their artwork chosen from almost 3,000 entries to be shocased along with 18 others last week.
Shaun Clark aged 8 is a pupil at Peterhead’s Clerkhill school and was at the Bon Accord centre last week to unveil the Easter Arts exhibition. Another Buchan pupil, Jaye Smith from Longhaven primary also had her art displayed for the week.
Over 2,800 entries were submitted to the Easter Arts project, organised by Bon Accord and St Nicholas Centres and Vue Cinema, which invited school children from across the city and shire to create Easter-themed drawings.
The twenty budding artists were invited down to the Bon Accord Centre last week to unveil the exhibition and were presented with their prizes comprising pairs of tickets to see the Easter blockbuster hit, Hop, at Vue Cinema on Shiprow as well as a host of Easter treats from various retailers in the Centres.
Cheryl Smith, Marketing Manager at the North-east’s premier shopping destination commented; “We have been overwhelmed by the sheer scale of entries we received for the competition. For the top twenty winners to be chosen out of almost 3,000 entries, their schools, and parents alike, must be very proud of their achievement. We were delighted that most of the top twenty winners were able to join us in officially unveiling this exciting exhibition, which will showcase their talented creations to all our shoppers visiting the Centre.”
