Year 5 student painting her way to success
A ST Jerome’s Primary School student is getting the most from her talent.
Year 5 student Vrindha Yarramreddy recently won the Fra Angelico Award.
St Jerome’s Primary School visual arts specialist teacher Marisa Cipriano said it was only the second year the competition had been open to primary school students. “She created her piece
Mary and Elizabeth using oil pastel on card,” she said.
“She was one of 30 students invited to participate in after-school art workshops to hone her skills and create artwork in preparation for the Angelico Art Exhibition for Primary Schools.” The theme of this year’s competition was ‘Year of Youth’.
Mrs Cipriano said she was delighted for Vrindha.
“(Her) commitment to her artwork was outstanding,” she said.
Vrindha plans to continue her art.
