Old Susannah's Journal - Childrens' Christmas Artwork

On 7 December a  special Christmas event took place in Union Terrace Gardens.  Children - over 300 of them - submtted fantastic artwork.  Forget the struggle over the garden for a while by enjoying these fantastic, wonderful, cheerful - and extremely talented artworks by the Children of Aberdeen.

 

I was pleased to be one of the judges - until I saw how much excellent artwork there was in each category.  Picking winners was difficult if not impossible.  These pieces of art are all great.  Find the one you made, your child made, or just ones you like; download them, and in a few years' time you just might be glad you have something to remember from this time.
