A new hand painted mural has been installed in Rickmansworth to celebrate local art.
The ongoing art project, with local artists and school children, is coordinated by Three Rivers District Council, in partnership with Berry Lane Art Group, and St Peter’s C of E Primary School in Mill End.
The school’s Year 6 pupils submitted designs into a competition in the hope of being a part of the mural.
The children’s designs were themed around their favourite memories of Rickmansworth.
Philippa Golding, Headteacher at St Peter’s C of E School, was thankful for the project and its affect on her pupils.
She said: "Our children worked with Artistsmeet over several weeks.
"This has been a wonderful experience, not only from a creative point of view, but also for our children to be involved in adding to their local community's culture."
To celebrate, an informal prize giving presentation took place for the children involved, their families, and the primary school staff on Friday 11th December at the Artistsmeet gallery.
Cllr. Chris Lloyd, Lead Member for Leisure at Three Rivers District Council, said: "We are delighted to be working in partnership with a St Peter’s C of E, and Berry Lane Art Group for this exhibition.
"There are many talented young people studying creative subjects locally and this is an excellent opportunity to celebrate their work and provide them with public exposure.
"Make sure when you come to the Pantomime or the January films you have a look."
