This is Art! is Ireland’s most exiting young people’s art competition, created by RTÉ and the Creative Ireland Programme aimed at young people on the island of Ireland.
Young artists were invited to create a piece of art to be showcased in a live digital gallery. The competition promoted artistic practice among young people aged under 18 and encouraged creativity, originality and self- expression. Entries were uploaded to www.thisisart.ie.
A number of children and young adults from Kilkenny entered this competition, their art can be viewed here – Kilkenny entries – This Is Art
