On Wednesday, 15th November 2017 CVC Year 9 student, Lucas Tan won second prize at the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture Youth Awards in the Years 9-10 category for his artwork ‘Self-Portrait.’ It was a proud moment for Lucas, his mum and his art teachers as they announced the winner. Lucas received an art pack from the Perth art supplier HU Kendall and Co.

CVC was also awarded a full day art workshop.  These workshops will be run by a professional portrait artist, and are courtesy of Squire Patton Boggs.

The 2017 Black Swan Prize for Portraiture Youth Award provides young artists with an opportunity to showcase their creative talents and to challenge them from an artistic perspective through the field of portraiture.

This year 180 youth entries were received for WA’s only portrait prize that is now celebrating its 11th year anniversary, up from 167 entries last year.

Many secondary schools enter this prestigious award ceremony, and we are proud to have done so well. Congratulations to all involved!
