SCHOOLS’ EASTER ART PROJECT

SCHOOLS’ EASTER ART PROJECT PRODUCES EGGCELLENT RESULTS

Pupils at three EK primary schools have been harnessing their inner Picasso to create unique egg shaped artworks for Easter.

EK, East Kilbride delivered three gigantic eggs to Murray Primary, Kirktonholme Primary and St Kenneth’s Primary, and challenged the budding artists to decorate the monster sculptures with an Easter theme.

The spectacular works will be on display in The Plaza in EK town centre over the school holidays (30th March to 6th April), with visitors invited to vote for their favourite egg in a competition on EK’s Facebook page.

No school will go home empty handed though.  Each Primary will receive £300 worth of Waterstones vouchers for taking part, with the school with the highest number of votes taking away an additional £300 to spend on art equipment in The Works.

Commenting on the Easter project, EK East Kilbride Centre Manager, Alan Smillie, said:

“All the schools were up for the challenge and pulled out the stops to create three wonderful Easter sculptures. There are some very impressive artistic skills on show and it will be a hugely difficult task to choose a winner.”

To vote for your favourite egg just log on to EK’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ekshoppingcentre) and let us know in the competition post the name of the school you think has created the most eggceptional sculpture.   All voters will be included in a prize draw to win a £50 voucher for EK’s ODEON Luxe.
