Lion Drawing Roars The Loudest In Rotary Painting Competition

Year 12 student Mollie Fraser, who won the KS5 Category in the Grimsby Havelok Rotary Club Painter of The Year Competition.

A stunning pencil crayon drawing of a lion won Year 12 student Mollie Fraser the Key Stage 5 Trophy in the annual Grimsby Havelok Rotary Club Painter Of The Year Competition. She was also awarded the School Shield.

This is the 11th year of the competition, which invites entries from schools across the region. The work is then displayed in Freeman Street Market for a fortnight.

Mollie said: "The competition was a great opportunity for me and definitely allowed me to gain some confidence in choosing to study Art in the future, and possibly as a career path. I was especially glad to do well with my lion drawing because, while I usually do wildlife, I was particularly proud of this drawing."

Tony Davis, Curriculum Leader For Art at Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College, said: "I am delighted and proud of Mollie in this year's Rotary Painter of the Year competition. The work she has produced shows an excellent understanding of the media, and an ability to capture observations with a sense of detail and accuracy. Super work, well done.

"It is also fantastic for the Art Department at Tollbar as Mollie is our fifth category winner in recent years."
