Young artists from Lightwater Village School have done their bit to banish the winter blues and replace it with spring yellows and greens after a selection of their works were featured in the Camberley Decorative and Fine Arts Society’s annual Spring Magic Exhibition.
The display at St Peter’s Church Hall in Frimley included artworks from various local schools, with Lightwater’s artistic community represented by collages, paintings and photographic submissions from children in Years R, One and Two.
“All children love to see their artworks on display but for it to be in a public arena like this means so much more – and the best bit is they’re absolutely wonderful pieces,” said Lightwater’s Head of School Karen Ney.
“We gave the teachers the task of choosing the best material from their classes, and the quality of those chosen was spectacular. Year R were asked to create collages linked to stories, Year One had to do something connected to Van Gogh’s sunflowers, and Year Two took landscape pictures inspired by photographer Charlie Waite.”
The display is the first Spring Magic Exhibition to have taken place since Lightwater and partner school Hammond joined the multi-academy GLF Schools group last November, and Mrs Ney said it was something in which the whole school took pride.
“For the children whose work was on display, of course there was a huge sense of personal satisfaction, but I think the rest of the school can share that too,” she explained. “As well as having the artists’ names on, these pictures also carry the name of Lightwater, getting our school and what we do there known amongst the wider community. And when it’s something so special that is being promoted, it reflects well on all of us.”
