Irish Independent

SIXTH CLASS students at Wicklow Montessori School were presented with a special group portrait to mark their graduation by well known artist and fellow Wicklow resident Conor Walton. Mr. Walton lives in Ashford and has held numerous popular solo exhibitions, including his most recent, Landscape and Still Life in the Jorgensen Fine Art Gallery in Dublin. His commission work includes leading academics, religious and political figures and can be found in private collections as well as public galleries.

Wicklow Montessori School Principal, Dara Mulhall, says, ' We were delighted when Conor, a parent at the school, made the kind offer of a group portrait. 'As well as giving us a permanent memento of a great group of children, if gives the students a terrific insight into the world of art.'

'The children were all drawn from life onto a single sheet of paper, each portrait taking about an hour to complete.'
