Summer colours at Haddo House

YOUNGSTERS at a number of north-east schools are getting the opportunity to show off their art skills in a special exhibition at Haddo House.

The Haddo Children’s Exhibition, which opened last Saturday, runs until August 6 and features a wide range of artwork including interpretive pieces, landscapes and portraits in a range of media.

Pupils from Daviot, Rothienorman, Logie Durno, Old Rayne, Rayne North, Pitmedden, Tarves and Udny Green Primaries worked in collaboration with local artists Jan Connell, Michelle Anderson and Jill Cooper from Meldrum, Ellon and Westhill to create the pieces, using a variety of techniques and building their own knowledge of the subject.
