Mermaid Arts Centre is inviting young people to submit portraits of their grandparents, along with a poem.
Young people who live in Wicklow and are aged between two and 18 can submit to the project.
There will be an online gallery exhibition on Mermaidartscentre.ie so that grandparents can log on and admire the work.
In the autumn, Mermaid will submit as much of the work as possible in the gallery at the arts centre.
Go to the website to submit.
