Children who have made it to the finals of a competition that could win them £750 worth of supplies have received framed pieces of artwork for their school.

Budding artists from Nelson Primary in East Ham are among children from three schools to reach the last stage of a campaign launched by Art.co.uk to encourage and inspire artists of the future.

As finalists, they have received 18 of their favourite framed artworks from Art.co.uk.

Now, to win the prize, the school needs family members, friends, community members and visitors to Art.co.uk to vote for it as their favourite school on art.com/artsparks by May 23. The school with the most votes will receive art supplies to the value of £750.

A spokesman for Art.co.uk said the school was chosen because “their application really showed their passion for art, both in school and using it in their community too and Art.co.uk really wanted to make a difference to a school and community in need”.
