dlr libraries advertised a childrens art competition on 13 May 2020. Children from Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown were asked to create a piece of art inspired by the title:
We had a great response and were delighted to receive over 50 entries within the age categories of 5 years and under, 6-8 years and 9-12 years.
The entries brought us joy, colour, inventiveness and creativity, which goes to show that even during the Covid-19 pandemic and time of quarantine during Ireland, our imaginations are always vibrant places to be!
As ever, winners for children's art competitions are extremely hard to pick. We engaged with a local artist to pick winning entries on our behalf. We would like to congratulate all the children that entered the competition and let them know we will be adding their art work to an online exhibition soon for all of our patrons to enjoy.
