Honor's Atmospheric Art work
Talented Wimbledon pre-schooler Honor de Montfort has won 3rd prize in The National Children's Day Art Competition at just 4 years old.
Honor, who has been attending Tot Art classes almost every week since she was 20 months old, was descibed by Wendy Briggs, founder of Tot Art, as "a well deserved winner".
Tot Art classes encourage children to respond in an individual way to skills & techniques taught; "Honor has developed the ability to translate her ideas on to paper and has become increasingly confident at handling a variety of media, which was obviously recognised by the judges" commented Wendy Briggs. Sandra Lipner, project Officer of National Children's Day UK who conveyed the happy news of Honor's win, called Honor's charcoal drawing & painting of trees "atmospheric".
National Children's Day UK was an idea established in May 2013 by The Save Childhood Movement, with the aim of it "becoming a major annual celebration of childhood" http://www.nationalchildrensdayuk.com/about-us.html
