Young artist wins prize

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - John Paul Ma­calino won Col­lege.

Each year, HiArts (High­lands Arts Ex­pe­ri­ence) of­fers a cash prize to the best se­nior art stu­dent at Sey­mour Col­lege and Yea Sec­ondary School.

The aim is to en­cour­age gifted stu­dents to con­tinue their art in­ter­est into adult­hood.

In 2017, John Paul Ma­calino won the prize at Sey­mour Col­lege while still in Year 11, and he has been in­spired by the chal­lenge of re­al­ism in his own work and in that of other artists.

He said he es­pe­cially ad­mired artists such as Sal­vador Dali, Sam Jinks, Jane Tan­ner, Mau­rits Escher and Michelan­gelo, and prefers draw­ing with pen­cils to de­velop his por­traits and fig­ures.

Me­gan West­wood was Yea’s win­ner.

The prizes for 2018 will be an­nounced by the end of the school year.
