Young artists re­ceive prizes

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

TWO Wick­low stu­dents have been pre­sented with top awards in this year’s 65th Tex­aco Chil­dren’s Art Com­pe­ti­tion.

Naoise Hen­nessy, a 16-year old stu­dent from Coláiste Bhríde, Carnew, was pre­sented with the award for over­all win­ner of this year’s com­pe­ti­tion by chair­man of the judg­ing panel Pro­fes­sor Gary Granville and James Twohig, Di­rec­tor Ire­land Op­er­a­tions at Valero.

Naoise won the se­nior 16-18 years cat­e­gory with her work ‘Life­lines’, a por­trait of an el­derly lady del­i­cately re­pro­duced us­ing wa­ter­colour pen­cils through­out. Com­pe­ti­tion judges de­scribed her paint­ing as ‘a finely de­tailed study that so per­fectly cap­tures the fea­tures and char­ac­ter of the sub­ject’.

Join­ing Naoise among the win­ners was Eimear Carvill (15) from Loreto Sec­ondary School in Bray. Eimear re­ceived a Spe­cial Merit Award for her piece, en­ti­tled ‘Five’.
