Art Mural Project
Read more about the fantastic schools, groups and artists who contributed towards brightening up the hoarding at Budgens of Holt with the message “what makes Holt special to you?”
Greshams Prep School
Emma, a Hunworth based artist, went to school in Holt. She says “The enormous lion and supermarket worker are protecting Holt while the building and community are both being rebuilt, stronger and better following all the devastations of 2020”.
Gresham School was founded in Holt in 1555. Sophie, Head of Art at the Prep School, orchestrated this colourful, pop-art piece with her students. The abstract Grasshoppers represent a modern twist on the school’s emblem.
Holt Owl Playgroup
Holt Primary School
Missy and the team at Holt Playschool have captured the scenic view from their school in this eye-catching mural. They’ve also included plenty of iconic landmarks for you to spot!
The children at Holt Primary School couldn’t wait to get creative! Headed by Sam and Eleanor, they’ve adorned their tree with all their favourite things, and are excited for their creation to be on show.
Holt Youth Project
Thank you to Tyler from Holt Youth Project for this bright and bold piece of artwork, portraying a meaningful outlook.
The team at the Treehouse have painted their community cafe and gardens which have transformed from ‘an empty field to a colourful oasis of beauty’ since they moved in on Charles Road.
Weybourne Coastal Art Group
Wild by Nature
The Coastal Art Group has been running for 15 years. Although its regular members normally express varied styles, Susan says the group was thrilled to work together on this project capturing the idyllic Poppy Line in action.
Davina, one of the group leaders at Holt’s forest school, says “We were inspired by Nature itself. Our tree in the middle represents the changing seasons and the nature within all of us – we are always changing and growing just as nature is.”
We are famous for our Georgian buildings here in Holt, and a group effort from High Kelling group Qu’elle Art has celebrated the town’s iconic architecture in this impressive mural measuring over 4.5m long, which can be seen from the Norwich Road!
