Bird perfect for Kilgraston pupils in GWCT art competition


Birds are very much of the moment at Kilgraston. This week witnessed another avian encounter with five pupils winning seven awards for their depiction of native species in the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust Schools’ art competition.

Now in its sixteenth year, the competition is open to all pupils, from Primary One to Sixth Year, across the county of Perth and Kinross and attracts hundreds of entries.

Each year, pupils are asked to submit a piece of artwork depicting a piece of British wildlife in its natural habitat.

The award ceremony was a prestigious event, held in Perth’s beautiful AK Bell Library, presided over by Dr Adam Smith, GWCTs Director of Policy Scotland.

Winning ways

Meteor P, was Runner-Up in the Secondary S1-4 category with her beautiful acrylic painting of a kestrel.

Upper Fifth pupils – India H, with her acrylic of a merlin falcon; Sophia L’s beautiful finch on pastel with acrylic ground; Maia M’s pastel of a puffin and Sana J’s swan and cygnets, all received commended certificates for their entries.

Maia was runner-up in the S5-6 category for her beautiful pastel study of a puffin.

Sana J U5 was the overall winner in the S5–6 category and received the GWCT/Blackadders Solicitors trophy for her stunning painting of a swan and her cygnets. Sana also won a set of six lessons with local ceramicist, Julian Jardine at his studios in Perth, along with a family pass to the Scottish Game Fair.

Kilgraston’s Head of Art, Gillian Macleod, said: “Well done to all the girls, not only the prize winners but also all those who entered the competition.  You are all winners in my eyes!”

The artwork is currently on show at the AK Bell Library.
