Budding young artists honoured
BUDDING artists from schools in the Cotswolds were honoured for their efforts in a special prizegiving ceremony.
More than 200 works of art were submitted to the Painted Cotswolds competition, organised by Cotswold District Council.
Award-winning former Moreton artist Darren Baker helped to judge the district-wide competition which encouraged local schools to depict the Cotswolds.
Isuri Sanchi Arachni of Chipping Campden School was the winner of the secondary school category and the overall winner was Alyssa Wint of Chesterton School, Cirencester.
Her work will be reproduced as a card and sold to raise funds for Gloucestershire Young Carers and the Stroke Association, the council chairman’s charities.
Six students from St James and Ebrington School, Chipping Campden, were primary school runners-up along with students from the Cotswold School in Bourton and Chipping Campden School in the secondary category.
Council chairman Councillor Sir Edward Horsfall, said: “The standard of the entries was truly commendable.”
The best 30 creations are now on display to the public at the council’s chamber in Cirencester.
