ARTISTIC youngsters helped to decorate a cafe with hundreds of paintings.

Pupils at Frinton Primary School showcased the results of a six-week art project by displaying their work at the Oasis Cafe in Connaught Avenue, Frinton.

The students studied seven different artists for some inspiration before coming up with their own artwork.

The pupils at the school produced works all based around a sunset theme.

Tracey Caffull, executive headteacher at the school, said: “We wanted to celebrate every child’s artwork in front of their community.

“It’s really important that the children get days like this, where they get a chance to show off what they can do.

“It has been a very successful day.

“Massive thanks to Frinton Free Church for their help.”

Headboy Aon Vlaentine said students were delighted at the results.

He said: “I think that everyone worked so hard this year, and the art gallery now looks like a kaleidoscope.

“It is work to be proud of”.

Pupil William Woods added: “I would like to buy all of the artwork because it looks so good.”

Matilda Merry said: “It was a really fun project.”

Mark Massey, administrator of the church, thanked the youngsters for contributing their work to the community cafe.

He said: “It is a great celebration of the children’s talent and it’s just been a wonderful community event.

“It took around two full days to set up because there was so much artwork.

“As we were setting it up the room and putting it on the walls, the room started to glow which was perfect for the sunset theme that the children were aiming for.”

Frinton Primary School thanked Frinton Free Church for its help with the project.

MP Giles Watling also attended the opening.
