HATS OFF TO HAT­TIE

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL’S NEWS -

A YOUNG bud­ding artist was ‘over the moon’ when she found out she had won an in­au­gu­ral art com­pe­ti­tion.

The first Ro­tary Young Artist Com­pe­ti­tion took place re­cently and at­tracted a high stan­dard of en­tries from four Ro­tary Clubs.

Hat­tie Master­son was pre­sented with an award by the Ro­tary Club of Amer­sham af­ter she won the In­ter­na­tional Dis­trict Young Artist Com­pe­ti­tion with her pic­ture of her dog Archie en­joy­ing the blue­bells.

Sub­mit­ting a com­ment with her pic­ture, Hat­tie said: “The most beau­ti­ful thing in the world is my dog, Archie, en­joy­ing the blue­bells.”

She was pre­sented with £25 to spend in the Amer­sham Art Shop in Sta­tion Road.

Ro­tar­i­ans An­drew War­ren, who or­gan­ised the com­pe­ti­tion, and Richard McKeen pre­sented her with the award in assem­bly along with the school’s art co-or­di­na­tor Miss Till­cock.

Dawn Lam­min from the school said: “Hat­tie was over the moon!”

The com­pe­ti­tion was judged by Stephen Lowe of the Amwell club and Steve Hal­ton, coun­try­side of­fi­cer for Cen­tral Beds, who is also a artist, pho­tog­ra­pher and writer.

The judges’ com­ments for Hat­tie’s pic­ture read: “Lovely pic­ture. Dog’s char­ac­ter beau­ti­fully ob­served, cheeky face. Good set­ting and land­scape. Nicely pre­sented. Blue­bells are dif­fi­cult to get the colour right and you man­aged to get it just right.”

Lo­cal schools will be in­vited to take part in the com­pe­ti­tion again next year. To reg­is­ter in­ter­est icon­tact Mary White­head by email­ing m.e.white­head@ bt­in­ter­net.com or call­ing 01234 838 238 or 07929 015 591.
