‘Young Artists’ Summer Show’
I am excited to announce that a new National art competition has been launched last month by the Royal Academy of Arts and we, at Whissendine, would love to share with you this fantastic opportunity for your children!
This competition is for children aged 5 to 19 years old and asks them to produce a piece of artwork (this can be in any medium they choose: painting, sketching, collage, sculpture etc.) and submit it to their teacher. I will then photograph their work and upload it to their secure website for submissions, where a panel of current artists and art experts review the piece, then choosing a selection from all the entries. The chosen pieces are then displayed at the Royal Academy of Arts, in London, and hosted on their website for all to see and share! The closing date for entries is Friday 24th April 2020.
In order for me to submit your child's work for consideration, I will first need a permission form filling out that says you are happy for your child's work and their first name, if chosen, to be displayed publicly online and through social media, and in the gallery itself. It also says that you accept that they may use the image of the artwork to advertise the Young Artists' Summer Show. These forms can be found below. Please send them with the children’s entries to their class teacher, who will then pass them on to me.
I am sure you will agree this is a very exciting opportunity for our artists. If you have any queries, please speak to your class teachers or send me a message via Dojo.
