Art success for Tomas

Many congratulations to Tomas (P1) who has been awarded Special Merit for his Dragon painting entered into the National Galleries Art Competition for Schools. This year is the sixteenth year it has been running and the organisers received over 8600 entries from all over Scotland, so to be amongst the winners is a major achievement.

Tomas said: “I enjoyed drawing my dragon. I chose red and pink for his body because I like those colours. Mummy and Daddy are very proud of me and I am happy and excited!”

Miss Holdsworth, Teacher of Art added: "I am delighted that Tom’s painting has been recognised by the National Galleries Art Competition. His picture was brilliant - I loved all the detail and his subtle painting technique. It is amazing that his picture was in the top 50 out of 8,600 entries!”
