Children show off creative talents in Forever Faye Art Foundation junior art club Easter competition

Have your say

Forever Faye Art Foundation (FFAF) junior art and crafts club members had a cracking time designing Easter-themed pictures in a competition.

Seven children were asked to create a picture which had to include chickens or hens and eggs or a combination.

The children had two weeks to work on their posters which they created using paper mosaic from magazine cuttings.

The designs will be displayed in the window of the fourwalls gallery on Burton Street over the Easter period before a winning design is chosen.

As part of their prize the winner will have their picture framed, thanks to the generosity of fourwalls owner Laz Grillo, as well as receiving a trophy from FFAF.

FFAF creator Kate Cree said: “The children were asked to use contrasting colours so their pictures stood out. It’s nice for them to have their work on display and I’d like to thank Laz who is giving part of the prize for absolutely nothing which is very generous.”

The Forever Faye Art Foundation and Forever Faye Academy of Fashion (FAAF) is an organisation devoted to the promotion of art and textiles and creativity in the community.

The foundation, which is based at Fox Yard off Leicester Street, Melton (under the arch), runs a junior art and crafts club (7-11 years), a sewing and craft club (11-16 years) as well as adult art and craft classes and adult sewing classes and workshops. There is also an art gallery at the premises and a FFAF retail shop, selling unique fashion pieces and jewellery as well as offering other services.
