Celebrating our students’ creativity away from ballet – Young Art 2023
Young Art is an annual competition held to celebrate the work of young artists. Thousands of young people from more than 70 schools submit their artwork every year. This year, 861 works were selected, chosen from more than 6,500 entries. Chosen pieces were exhibited each year at The Royal College of Art and judged by a panel of leading contemporary artists and Royal Academicians, whose works were also displayed.
Young Art has raised more than £1,250,000 over the last 30 years towards vital research into childhood cancers and clinical trials at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health. This is entirely thanks to children helping children.
The theme of this year’s event was Everyday Life. Our students worked hard on their pieces and were excited to see their artwork featured in the exhibition. We were delighted that family, friends, and staff members were able to celebrate with our talented artists and see their work on the walls.
Presentation of awards
Each of our eight students received commendations. Year 10 student Theodore King received third prize for print-making. These awards were presented by former rector of The Royal College of Art, Professor Sir Christopher Frayling. It was a wonderful evening and we are very proud of the students.
