Attractive and friendly seaside boards painted by children and young people from Bridlington will be displayed along the town’s north and south promenade and at Sewerby Hall and Gardens on Thursday, 9 August.
Art on the Prom is a programme delivered by the sport, play and arts service, east riding of Yorkshire council to make brighten up towns and villages to encourage residents to take pride in their area and appreciate the talents of children and young people.
Each board is unique and has been designed and painted by the participants aged from five to 16 years. An array of fish, seabirds and beach scenes have been created to transformed the tired-looking seating area and it is hoped both residents and visitors will enjoy and feel inspired by these colourful pieces of artwork. The art competition had been given a positive reception with over 200 entries received.
Vicky Jude, play projects officer, said: “We would like to thank everyone who submitted a competition entry and really enjoyed looking through the designs.
“Choosing a small number to replicate onto large wooden boards was truly a difficult task. We would also like to thank West Building Supplies Limited for donating the timber and appreciate their support in making Art on the Prom a success”.
The sport, play and arts team is looking for additional areas they need brightening up and also organisations that would be willing to sponsor the project.
