The stunning work of budding young artists at Cranleigh Prep School has been originally displayed on a brightly-coloured cow, named ‘Cowlage’, as part of the Surrey Hills Cow Parade initiative.

Dozens of colourful cows are starting to decorate the hills, farms, towns, schools and popular landmarks across Surrey, until the end of August, when they will be herded back to the Surrey Hills Cow Parade HQ in Peaselake. They will then be exhibited together and judged at the inaugural Surrey Hills Food, Drink & Music Festival at Coverwood Farm, Peaselake before they are auctioned. This ingenious idea aims to promote the beauty of the Surrey Hills and provide a massive boost to local businesses and community projects

Under the wonderful creative guidance of Helen McNiven, Head of Art, pupils have painted a striking array of images of school life. These have now been thoughtfully and imaginatively put together as a spectacular collaged, vibrant, multi-coloured and very beautiful three-dimensional, life-size cow which is on display outside the art room.
