YOUNG ART 30th Anniversary Exhibition at the Royal College of Art

28 April- 1 May 2020


We have much to celebrate…. in the last 29 years YOUNG ART has raised over £1.1million for research into childhood cancers.
This year the 2019 Exhibition raised an amazing £87,000 - what an achievement and many thanks to the teachers who inspired 7,600 pupils to enter YOUNG ART 2019. There were 830 pictures displayed at the Royal College of Art and it was a wonderful Exhibition……..the galleries were buzzing.

The 2020 YOUNG ART Exhibition will be extra special with lots of new ideas to make the 30th Anniversary an Exhibition to remember


Please do not contact the Royal College of Art, all schools have the Exhibition details. 

 
 
 

Encouraging art in schools is so important. I thank YOUNG ART for providing such an amazing platform to do so.


I couldn't have been more proud to see my daughter's picture on the walls!

All the money goes to children's cancer research, I would have donated my son's picture a million times over!

The concept of YOUNG ART is brilliantly simple. 

YOUNG ART is an exhibition at the Royal College of Art for school students aged 4-18 raising funds for Research into Childhood Cancers.

It is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring artists to have their work judged by well-known professional artists and exhibited at the prestigious Royal College of Art and, at the same time, raise money for Research into Childhood Cancers.

YOUNG ART is run by volunteers and the overheads are kept to a minimum by our loyal supporters and sponsors, ensuring that almost all the money raised goes to research into the genetic causes of childhood cancers through Research into Childhood Cancers.

YOUNG ART is a wonderful opportunity for children who enjoy art to help other children who are suffering from cancer and whose futures are not quite so assured.

To participate each student donates £2 per entry to Research into Childhood Cancers.

The entries are collected in January of each year.  Approximately 800 artworks are hung and every exhibitor receives a certificate.  In addition the judges award 1st, 2nd and 3rd Prizes in 6 age categories (see Rules for details). 2019 welcomes the separate PRINTMAKING category judged by Prof Chris Orr MBE RA as well as DRAWING category judged by Eileen Cooper OBE RA.  

Every school that participates will be represented at the exhibition, a proportion of the total number of entries submitted will be displayed. 

THE MORE PICTURES ENTERED PER SCHOOL THE MORE WILL BE EXHIBITED.

Everyone is welcome at the exhibition – school groups during the day, exhibitors and parents on assigned evenings.

 
 
 

I had no idea my son was so good at art!
He was so excited to show me his work on the wall.


It just shows you how creative young people can be
With the drawing prize and now the printmaking prize as well, it really encourages the pupils to try something new.

It is such an important part of our curriculum. It allows the children to really create.

Our Supporters

 

Encouraging art in schools is so important. I thank Young Art for providing such an amazing platform to do so.


Because it's 'off curriculum' the students feel free to really express themselves. They love it!
It's a great place to meet other teachers and see what they are doing too.


YOUNG ART provides a showcase for our pupils’ creativity it is a wonderful opportunity for them.
