Sessions allow budding young artists to tap into their talents

An art school for children and young people in Kensal Rise has had a grand exhibition of its work.

Mini Picassos, in Station Terrace, showcased the bright, Hockney inspired paintings last week.

Sarah Neale founder of Mini Picassos, set up the art sessions when her own children started primary school.

Disappointed at how little art the children did at school, Sarah, who was head of art at a school in Enfield and Clapham, decided to start up her own art lessons.

She said: “We have some really talented children who have worked hard all year to produce some amazing pieces.

“It was great to see the children talking to their parents and friends about the artwork they have produced. We are so proud of our young artists.”

For more information call Sarah on 07903638817.
