My 8 year old recently produced a lovely piece of work that she entered into a local art competition. The theme was Alice in Wonderland, celebrating the 150 years of the book. Both my daughter's entered but unfortunately didn't win but nevertheless they enjoyed the challenge.
Photos of her doing her design on the canvas.
