We are very pleased to announce that Lillian's winning entry in our local heat won the District Heat and will now go forward to the National Finals - GOOD LUCK LILLIAN
We now have the winners of the Grays Thurrock Rotary Young Artist Competition:
The Rotary theme this year was  "Through my Eyes".
The winning entry of the Senior Section was an oil on stretched canvas (30x40cms) and was painted by Lillian Tagg, a student at William Edwards School. This was Lillian's description as to how her artwork relates to the competition theme: "Seeing how people can view their own bodies compared to reality and how people can be blinded by things when seeing it through their own eyes"
The winning entry of the Intermediate Section was also an oil on stretched canvas (36x45cms) and was painted by Isabella Jasper, also a student at William Edwards School. Isabella's description of her composition was  "I decided to draw the World in an eye because I see the World as everchanging. The sunset background signifies my love of sunsets. This means that the World can be seen in many different ways depending on the person"
Well done to both of you-many congratulations and thanks to all our entries this year - it has been a fabulous experience just seeing the many varied variations on a theme - inspiring!
