ARE YOU READY TO IMAGINE MORE? THEN ENTER THE CREDIT UNION ART COMPETITION 2020

Tipperary Credit Union is urging its local community to ‘Imagine More’ for its this year’s credit union annual art competition.

This year’s theme, ‘Imagine More’, is influenced by the creative role art plays in Irish society and encourages participants to unlock their imagination and look at how art inspires us and our communities. Despite the current challenges, art has kept people from all walks of life connected and this year’s theme encourages participants to express this connectivity on paper or canvass.

HOW THE COMPETITION WORKS

The competition seeks to encourage young artists to draw or paint on this year’s theme, using pencil, charcoal, pen or ink, felt-tip markers, crayon, pastel, water colours, gouache, acrylics, oils, poster colour or collage.
