|Young Artists Shine in Riverside Competition|
Schoolkids produce paintings to decorate development's hoarding
Youngsters from two primary schools in Fulham showed off their artistic talents in a competition run by Barratt London and Sainsbury’s Fulham.
The Nature Rocks Art Competition aimed to find riverside inspired artwork for the hoarding of Barratt London’s Fulham Riverside development.
Two local schools in Sands End - New King’s Primary School and Sulivan Primary School took part in the art competition, which asked children to produce a picture inspired by the River Thames and nature of the foreshore.
After careful consideration and speaking with the children about their pictures, the judges cams to a unanimous decision and the winners were announced as follow
1st prize: Callum Tomolillo from New King’s School, who received two tickets to the London Eye and a deluxe art set, as well as having his winning picture displayed on the site hoarding.
3rd prize: Chiara Tugado of New King’s School, who received a deluxe art set.
In fact the judges were so impressed with the quality of the work that they decided to put all 30 pictures entered in the the contest onto the hoarding.
Fulham Riverside will create 463 new homes and a major new Sainsbury’s superstore, along an historic and picturesque stretch of the River Thames. The waterfront development will also include landscaped gardens, public open space and the transformation of the disused jetty into a landscaped ecological centre.
