A big congratulations to Joey’s first and second years art students who did very well in this years annual Fairview Credit Union art competition. Dillon Couch (2nd Year) scooped the first prize for 14-17 year category for his creative interpretative painting based on this years theme “Artfest”. Vadim Cretu won second place and Dean Carr came third. Their colourful paintings will automatically be entered into the next round of the competition where these Joey’s students will go up against other students in schools around North County Dublin. The three boys were awarded a certificate and a cheque from the Fairview Credit Union.
Tom Gaskin (1st Year) won the first prize for the 11-14 year category while Darren Hevey came second and Lee Font came third in the competition. These students were also happy to received certificates and cheques for their efforts.
The competition is about encouraging and rewarding self expression, creativity and imagination among young artists throughout Ireland. It requires entrants to draw or paint a poster on theme Artfest using a wide range of mixed media.
Congratulations to all the Joey’s boys who entered the competition and represented their school. We wish the winner the best of luck in going forward to the North County Dublin heat.
