We are thrilled to share that Saskia, a talented Year 10 student, has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious Lester Youth Prize with her incredible self portrait. Out of over 200 entries nationwide, only 30 portraits were selected for this prestigious exhibition. Saskia’s self portrait was completed when she was in Year 9 as part of the Traditional Drawing elective. It is currently on display in the CPA foyer, on the wooden wall beside Wanju Cafe.

The Lester Prize for Portraiture's Youth Awards exhibition runs from Friday 12 April to Sunday 14 July at WA Museum Boola Bardip. This prestigious event celebrates the finest emerging artists in Australia, and Saskia’s inclusion among the finalists is testament to her incredible talent.
