Pasta Arts Challenge – May Magazine

As part of the May Magazine about “Our Multicultural School”, we held a mini arts challenge: create a 2D reproduction of a famous building/monument of the world with pasta!

We received entries from 8 participants. They were all very inventive and beautiful, which made it hard to judge!

As decided by the magazine journalists’ vote, the two joint winners of the arts challenge were: Lili, Y2 and Isla, Reception. Well done Lili & Isla! and a big thank you to all participants!
