Junior Painter of the Year Award!

The first ever Junior Painter of the Year Award is being launched by Sightsavers and I am delighted to be one of the judges!
The theme is 'The sight I would most like to see.' The deadline is the 20th November so you all have lots of time to get painting!

I hope all the schools around the country take part. It is for all primary school children and there's fantastic prizes to be won.
Easons are giving away gift vouchers to the winners totaling €3000. The regional winners will be exhibited in Airfield in Dundum at the prize giving next year. There is plenty of scope for your imaginations to run wild. Its a great theme, so get doodling first, your ideas might be a place from your imagination, an imaginary creature, animals, portraits of people you love, the texture and colour of paint .You can pick up your pack and find information here.

Then pick up that paintbrush and get painting!

Too fun to pass up! At least now I won't dread another rainy weekend; we'll have the paints out and see what happens.
