Spring Magic 2018


After a week in which we experienced all kinds of unkind and hostile weather, it was an enormous relief to have benign sunshine from the start of the Exhibition weekend. This year thirteen primary/infant schools took part, with work from a few eleven and twelve year olds from Hall Grove, who were one of the two additional schools contributing to the 2018 celebration.

The Exhibition was opened by Kari Butler, one of the national Young Arts team at Arts Society House, and she spoke of her pleasure at the amount of work on display, and praised the schools for its variety and quality. Indeed, many artistic styles and techniques were on show, including amazingly populated collages of the continents, photographs of curious aspects of school buildings, some stunning “pop art”, startling super-heroes and gently coloured still-lifes. This year we had a profusion of 3D and sculpted pieces, ranging from dragons and polar animals, brightly coloured ceramic bowls and cups, wonderful clay and paper masks to some very arresting and exciting clay sports people in action!

The children were taken aback when they saw the extent of the art on show – several told us with a degree of professional pride “I had work in the last Exhibition as well”, and a great number of those with art on show actually came back with their very proud parents on the Saturday!

We were immensely proud to bring all their art to a public exhibition, and the Young Arts group and I cannot give enough thanks to Society members and Committee members past and present, who gave so willingly of their time and good cheer to make the whole Spring Magic event possible.
