Eshika Eva Paul (age 7), from The Arthouse in Drogheda won a Special Merit Award in last year’s Texaco Children’s Art Competition for this painting entitled ‘Mother And Baby Deer’.
Drogheda and County Louth in general has a proud record of success in the national institution that is the Texaco Children's Art Competition and this year enthusiastic young artists have at least had plenty of time to practice their art.
This year marks the 67th year of the competition making it the longest running arts sponsorship in Ireland.
The organisers are now inviting young artists across the country to submit their entries for the 2021 competition and the closing date is Wednesday, 24th March 2021.
