The Irish Wildlife Trust has launched the third edition of their children’s art competition WildArt. The competition will engage children in the wonders of local wildlife through the seasons. Children up to the age of 16 years of age are invited to enter the competition by creating a drawing, painting, model or collages on the theme: “Irish Wildlife Through the Seasons”. The competition is open from now until 17:00 on 25th April. There are four age categories with a prize for the winner in each category. The age categories are 6 and under; 7 to 9; 10 to 13 and 14 to 16 years.
“We are delighted to announce that the Irish Wildlife Trust WildArt Competition is back. This year, we can all get outside to explore and enjoy nature thriving. We’d love to see kids creating any piece of art about what an Irish landscape, plant, or animal from their favourite season – or through the seasons – means to them. If we pay attention to our local environment we have a chance to see how the changing seasons are so important for nature. This competition is a chance to represent that in a piece of art” according to Fabiola Vieira of the Irish Wildlife Trust.
From the first flowers of spring, to the sounds of summer, to amazing autumn colours, to a magical winter wonderland, every season has a reason! And nature’s constant change and rhythms have always inspired us to look, learn and create. So have fun and let your imagination run wild with WildArt!
