AFRICAN art created by pupils at a village school has gone on display at a gallery.
The winners of an art competition held at Guilden Morden Primary School have gone on display at the Ashwell Art Gallery, High Street, Ashwell, where they will hang until July 23.
All the classes in the school developed African-themed paintings as part of its annual creativity week.
The work was then displayed in the school hall, with the best pieces being selected for the gallery.
Mike Berry from Ashwell Art Gallery judged the competition.
He said: “Being in the art business, I was very pleased to be able to help with the art competition at Guilden Morden Primary school. Judging the works was interesting as well as challenging.
We on the judging panel were looking for use and combination of colour, composition, craft, and creative independence, and to do this with regard to the age of each contributor.
