TWO Waterfall Preparatory pupils won prizes at the Summerveld “Fun in the country” school art competition.

The Rotary Club of Kloof hosted the “Fun in the country at Summerveld” event on the 21 May, to raise funds for environmental groups in the area, including Keep Kloof Beautiful, Keep Hillcrest Beautiful, Everton Conservancy, and other environmental groups.

Part of this fun day in the country, included a school art competition specifically for Grades 3 and 6 from schools in the area. The theme of the competition was “A fun day in the country”, and pupils were encouraged to interpret the theme any way they chose.
Waterfall Preparatory Grade 3 class entered their interpretations of the theme, and ended up winning first and third prize.

The two talented pupils are Taitum Glanz (first prize winner), her artwork captured a fun day in the country, with its bright colours and fun themes and Alexander Cooper (third prize winner), his artwork captured the imagination of the judges with its almost abstract interpretation of the theme.

Waterfall Preparatory is delighted with the creativity of these Grade 3 pupils: “Our Grade 3 pupils thoroughly enjoyed creating their masterpieces for this competition.  In our art lessons, we have been exploring various drawing and painting techniques.  The children enjoyed applying those that complimented their compositions for their interpretations of the topic. 
“It is always so exciting to see their creativity blossoming through their art.  What cheerful pictures our artists produced for this competition.  Well done to Taitum and Alex, our first and third place winners.”
