To celebrate the achievements of one of our Year 9 international artists, there is a small exhibition of work in the School Library until the end of term, showcasing several paintings by Leonor Castro Santos, Year 9 International.
Leanor, now 14 and in Year 9, moved from Lisbon to the Algarve at the beginning of Year 8 and she finds her new school surroundings very inspiring. She said: “I have been drawing and painting for as long as I remember; my whole life probably! In the future I would like to work in an artistic role, perhaps in advertising, magazine design or children´s book illustrating. “
Leonor has displayed captions with her paintings and she showed her sketch book that she has kept this year, with ideas and examples of art and design that she finds inspiring.
“My name is Lenor Castro Santos and I couldn´t live without a paintbrush and a set of paint! I am 14 years old and since I was young, I´ve always had this little passion for drawing and painting! Nobel International School has helped me to develop my interests, techniques and my determination! Thank you so much for this opportunity of presenting my paintings, and I hope you all enjoy!”
