Artists work picked as best in Rossendale

THREE artists from Fearns had their work selected as the best in a competition organised by Rossendale Rotary Club.

The theme for the annual competition was Wonderful World and the work of Lily Campbell-Chadwick, Kalumn Ridgway and Brandon Ross won.

Lily, 11, said: “I put a world in the centre and then lots of different landmarks around it including the Eiffel Tower.

“I didn’t expect to win. I draw a lot and I like drawing animals.”

Brandon Ross, 13, admitted he was shocked to win because ‘it never happens to me’.

“I drew and owl in a jungle scene with a snake wrapped around a tree,” he said.

“I coloured it in pencil and it took me about four to five hours to complete.”

Kalumn’s black and white drawing of a rabbit was also picked as a winner.

The 14-year-old said: “At first I drew the picture in my lesson and then my teacher told me about the competition so I drew it again and made the picture larger.

“I really enjoy art because I think I am good at it and I like trying to do detail. I like seeing how the picture turns out in the end.”

The winning entries each won a £20 voucher for the pupils.

Head of Art and Technology Mrs Whiteley said: “I am extremely proud of my Key Stage 3 pupils winning the local Rotary art competition.

“They worked very hard in their own time and at after school art club.”
