IN AID OF THE JACK AND JILL FOUNDATION

Local artist and owner of The Art Studio and The Louise Cherry Gallery Wicklow Town, Louise has come up with a great initiative to get young artists painting during homeschooling and all for a good cause, The Jack and Jill Foundation. There is no cost to enter the competition but a donation to The Jack and Jill Foundation would be welcomed. There are lots of great prizes up for grabs, including a voucher from The Sports Room.

FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILDREN NATIONWIDE

The competition is open to children at primary school level. There are two projects to choose from – Project 1 is a Shape and Colour Drawing / Designing and Project 2 is Imaginary World Drawings. The closing date for entries is Friday 26th Februrary 2021.

PAINTINGS ON VIEW AT THE LOUISE CHERRY GALLERY

The Sports Room is delighted to sponsor a prize in this competition. The lockdown has been really difficult for so many children. I know our own children are missing their sports so much so this is a great opportunity to nurture their creative sides.

Best of luck to all the children entering! By all accounts and following Louise’s posts on Facebook and Instagram, she is receiving lots of entries every day.

Entries are already on display at The Louise Cherry Gallery on Morton’s Lane (otherwise known as Hopkins’ Hill). We look forward to sneaking a peak at the entries through the gallery window!
