SmArt Press Information

"Eight year-old Kyle Taylor has taken first prize in the smArt entries at this year’s Ludlow Art Society Spring Exhibition.

Kyle and the other children from SmArt – the Saturday morning kids’ arts and crafts club run by Tanith Kinton at the Ludlow Assembly Rooms – were all invited by LAS to submit entries for a special display based on an armorial theme.

In addition to creating individual designs for medieval coats of arms and native American medicine shields, the children – who range in age from 8 to 14 – were all encouraged to also produce a short description of the creative thought behind their designs.

Kyle’s winning entry was entitled “Majestic Eagle”.  His description was, “Birds are beautiful and graceful.  I wanted to make the eagle look fantastic flying in the sky.  I enjoyed using feathers to make him come to life”.

The LAS Spring Exhibition – which was held in Ludlow’s Harley Centre – showed off a large selection of original work in various mediums by society members.
Almost 600 people visited the exhibition and saw not only the smArt display, but also the 270 paintings, sculptures and items of etched glassware that were on show. The SmArt club entries were judged by Marc Soubyran, who also performed the official opening ceremony."
