Lockdown: No Barrier to Creativity

Lockdown may have curtailed our access to face-to-face art classes and gallery visits but in some cases the upside has been more time to devote to our own creative practice.

Veronique Laurent (Year 5) has definitely seen the upside, choosing to focus on her art, at the beginning of 2020, to make use of her spare time when other activities had been curtailed.

The 2021 pandemic induced lockdown bolstered her creative output and as a result she has been named a finalist in the Georges River Little Art Prize.

Veronique’s work in soft pastels, titled Bird is a bright, joyful celebration of the natural world. She chose the subject because I love animals and wanted to create something with a range of bright colours.

Veronique’s work along with those of other finalists of the Georges River Little Artist Prize will be on display at the Clive James Library and Service Centre from 13 November 2021 – 20 January 2022.

Congratulations Veronique on a well-deserved award.
