Budding artists from Newham schools showcased their designs to Stratford shoppers.
Schools in the borough exhibited artwork in Art Matters, a pop-exhibition at Westfield Stratford City.
Works were chosen from more than 2,000 pieces for the “relevance” and “application of colour” across different mediums.
Art Matters — a joint venture between schools, the University of East London and the University of the Arts London — ran throughout August.
The exhibition also featured an interactive installation for the E20 postcode area.
Stratford residents chose a colour that best represented the area, which was revealed on Sunday and reportedly attracted more than 1,000 visitors over its opening weekend.
This month the shopping centre celebrates Design Month, a partnership with the Museum of Brands.
The series of events include a pop-up zoo, design-your own t-shirts and talks from the creative team.
The free exhibition runs from midday until 6pm Thursday to Sunday throughout September.
