10-year-old artist visits the EU Delegation

21 December 2012

The cover of this year’s Christmas cards of the EU Delegation to Armenia was drawn by a young artist, Areg Grigoryan. After the choice of the design, Areg and his father were invited to the EU Delegation in Yerevan, where they met with the Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Traian Hristea.
Areg, 10 years old, participated in the International Drawing Competition on Gender Equality with his drawing called “A dove of peace over the world’. In fact, he was only 8 years old when he drew his “masterpiece”.
There was no Armenian winner of the international competition, however, the EU Delegation decided to choose one of the best drawings from the participants for the cover design of its greeting cards.
Hristea thanked the young boy for his imagination that now graces the holiday cards of the EU in Armenia and presented the young artist with gifts, including card samples with his drawing.
Areg now studies at Quantum College in Armenia and said: ‘I like maths, I am interested in science, but I haven’t decied yet what I will do when I grow up.
