Young artistic flare was portrayed through the entries received for a colouring competition hosted by Africa’s most visited automotive museum, the AutoPavilion, a place of cars and legends.

Kids aged 12 and younger were invited to showcase their talent by colouring-in a vintage VW Beetle. There were five different categories. The winners each received a gift packet filled with art supply to the value of R1 000.

“The whole idea behind this competition was to encourage young artistic talent. Looking at all the entries received it is heartwarming to see there definitely are real talented children in our area,” said Nicholas Batten, Manager Communications: VWSA Communications Division.

“Children are important to us. And this is a way of assisting those who have an interest in art by earning the right art tools. Who knows, one day one of these winners might be a great artist, hailing from our area.

“With this competition we are hoping to encourage more young ones to make use of the opportunity offered by the AutoPavilion free of charge,” said Batten.

  • During the forthcoming holiday there will be a colouring in competition which entails kids using colour and their creativeness to theme a vintage VW Kombi bus. The image will be available at www.autopavilion.co.za or at the AutoPavilion in Uitenhage.
