Exhibition of schoolchildren's art
SCHOOLCHILDREN in Westbury-on-Trym are putting on an exhibition of their artwork produced over the summer to raise money for charity.
The masterpieces, which were created at the Summer Holiday Art Club, will be on show at the Community Church Hall with all proceeds from the gallery set to be donated to Water Aid and Children in Need.
Mum-of-three Jo Sunderland, who organised the Summer Holiday Art Club, said she was dreading the start of the summer holidays until she came up with the idea. She said: "I was reading an article in the Guardian about things to do with your children over the summer.
"There was the usual suggestions, museums, parks, nature walks, but one suggestion really caught my eye – collect all the summer art work and put on an exhibition.

"I have two girls and they produce copious amounts of sticky pictures and paintings and I never know what to do with it. So, myself, and a few mums from school, started the Summer Holiday Art Club."
Keziah, six, says her favourite activity was ceramic painting. She said: "We bought some cups and plates from Ikea and painted them. I use mine for breakfast every day. I liked everything and we did biscuit making too."
Anita, four, said she liked meeting her friends at the club over the summer. She said: "There were lots of us doing art all at the same time. Sometimes it got very messy. I liked making butterfly pictures with paint."
The Bristol Summer Holiday Art Club exhibition is on display at Community Church Hall, Albert Place, Westbury-on-Trym from 11.30am to 2pm on Saturday.
Adults will have to pay £2.50 for entry while children go free. Refreshments will be served and toys available.
