Exceptional Lock Down Oil Painting at Carr Manor Community School

We were delighted to see the article in the Yorkshire Evening Post  on Monday 15th June which showcased the exceptional creative talents of Carr Manor Community School Yr 10 student, Eoghan Thompson. He took inspiration from a photograph of his aunt and her colleague at work in the NHS Waterside Hospital in Derry City, Northern Ireland and re-created the iconic image of the two women as an oil painting.

The two women, Deirdre Rigney, (Eoghan’s aunt) and Marian Ward, are pictured in their full scrubs on a COVD-19 ward in the middle of the pandemic. Deirdre works with elderly patients and is a nurse on a dementia ward, but was moved to a COVID-19 ward to help nurse elderly patients with additional illnesses such as dementia.

The school is proud of Eoghan’s work, which features in its fortnightly newsletter distributed to parents and carers.


Read the full story in the Yorkshire Evening Post. Please do let us know about the amazing artwork that you are doing in your school. We'd love to feature it!
