Poppy’s art is first class
Glenboig Primary pupil Poppy Robinson was quick on the draw as she claimed a runner-up award in a national competition.
She was selected as one of the top entrants to the annual drawing contest run by artist and playwright John Byrne.
The P5 youngster impressed John and his fellow judges to be chosen from the thousands of entrants as one of the 30 runners-up from schools all over Scotland.
Poppy received her certificate, designed by the artist himself, at a ceremony in Paisley Museum and Art Gallery, where competition entries are on display until April 29.
John Byrne said: “The talent this year has once again been outstanding, making my job as a judge very difficult.
“I’m encouraged by the standard of all the artwork submitted and I hope pupils across Scotland will continue to harness their artistic skills and love for drawing.”
The competition is open to all pupils from P4 to S3 and is run in partnership with Education Scotland.
Its chief executive Gayle Gorman said: “It offers pupils across Scotland the opportunity to showcase their drawing skills and creativity and as we celebrate the year of young people I’m delighted that such a large number took part.”
Well done Poppy Robinson with John Byrne
