NORTHERN RAIL COMPETITION WINNER
A student in Year 7 has won an art competition launched by Northern Rail.
To celebrate World Art Day Northern Rail invited budding artists to draw, paint, collage or sculpt what Northern (or trains) means to them.
Every year World Art Day on April 15th celebrates the fine arts and promotes awareness of creativity worldwide.
The best artwork in three different categories was chosen by local artist Alastair Nicholson, who has run community art projects across the Northern network including at Blackburn and Burnley Manchester Road stations.
Elenore entered the competition and found out on 8th April that she won the Under 18 category! Her work will be on display at Manchester Victoria and on digital screens across the network.
Well done Ellie!
WORLD ART DAY
Each year, on 15 April, World Art Day celebrations help reinforce the links between artistic creations and society, encourage greater awareness of the diversity of artistic expressions and highlight the contribution of artists to sustainable development. It is also an occasion to shine a light on arts education in schools, as culture can pave the way for inclusive and equitable education.
