Pupils from local schools got their creative juices flowing for an art competition in Pocklington.

Burnby Hall Gardens organised The Major Stewart Art Awards, which it holds every two years, and eight schools from across the local area took part.

The theme of the competition was the Burnby Hall Museum, and pupils each had to create a piece of art using any medium and drawing inspiration from anything in the museum.

Each school then produced a display showing the work done by its pupils

Burnby Hall Gardens events manager Sara Waddington said: “We held this event because we want to be involved with the community as much as possible.

“We’ve done it for a number of years and each year there is a different theme.”

The overall winner of the competition, Jack Roberts from Pocklington School, received The Richard Seaborn Cup. Bishop Wilton Primary School won the key stage one award, Barmby Moor Primary claimed the key stage two award and they key stage three award went to Pocklington School.
