Children’s Artwork Competition

We’ve been blown away by the charming, original, and downright impressive pictures we’ve received in response to our Children’s Artwork Competition! We asked Britain’s budding artists to get creative using shapes, using them to create whatever scenes burst into their imaginations. The winner will receive one of our brand-new Drum footstools as a big, hearty kudos. To judge the competition we turned to our very own resident artist and Arlo owner, Julie Smith as well as our eagle-eyed Head of Marketing, Michelle White. So, without further ado, let’s run through a few star submissions and get to the winner!

Fish Finger Fox
Toby, aged 7 years old

We are in love with Fish Finger Fox and really like the use of opposing colours in the piece.
Even the title of the artwork is brilliant.

Autumnal Scene
Rose, aged 8 years old

We would like to live here. It’s seriously Scandi and very cool.

Acrylic Shapes
Sophia, aged 11 years old

Great use of Mondrian colours and beautifully geometric.

Favourite Shapes
Jasmine, aged 12 years old

We like this piece of art because it could really lend itself to a fabric print. We would love to see the pattern on one of our sofas!

Shape Geometric Design
Christopher’s daughter

We really enjoyed the surreal nature of this piece. The texture and energy is great!

Fergus, aged 11 years old

Clean Kandinsky vibes make this work of art marvellously modern.


We like how sophisticated this piece is and the use of primary colours. There’s a real sense of transparency.

Drum roll please…

The winner of our Children’s Artwork competition is Toby for his brilliant depiction of Fish Finger Fox! Well done, Toby - and great job winning a Drum footstool for your family! We loved every bit of your artwork, and the name certainly clinched in for us. Keep up the creativity - the world could use a few more Fish Finger Foxes!
