LEANDRI VAN SCHALKWYK
The Polokwane Art Competition is gaining momentum and currently a bunch of talented young artists being tutored by Mernette Swartz are enthusiastically working on their entries to make sure they don’t miss the closing date of 27 May 2015.
Ten-year-old Natascha Jacobs said the theme ‘Oceans of the World’ is right up her alley because she loves painting different features of oceans.
The other exciting themes are My Back Yard, Dream Big and Our Creative World, Design the Future and Identity. There is also a photography category where the under 18s can let the creative juices flow to depict the themes The Wonder of Nature and Life’s Obstacles. One of the highlights of the competition will no doubt be an exhibit of the entries at Ocean basket Mall of the North from 1 to 8 June. Another will be the auctioning of 20 selected entries and the funds generated benefiting a local charity. The prizes include restaurant vouchers and stationery.
Entries costs R30 per art work and a maximum of five entries per category per person is allowed. Entries can be handed in at Ocean Basket Mall of the North or at Polokwane Observer, 5 Gen Joubert Street (between Marshall and Suid streets).
