Students at the young art exhibition at the royal college of art

Our students’ artwork exhibited in the Young Art Exhibition at The Royal College of Art

Three of our students from Years 9 and 10, Carlos Almodóvar White, Taesha Patterson, and Rose Milner, recently exhibited their artworks in the Young Art Exhibition at the Royal College of Art. The exhibition is an annual event that showcases children’s drawings, paintings, and prints, with this year’s theme being ‘Our Living World.’

Each year, over 70 schools and thousands of young people participate in the competition. More than 7,600 submissions were received, out of which only around 800 were selected for exhibition. The exhibited pictures are evaluated by a panel of leading contemporary artists and Royal Academicians, whose works are also on display.

Over the last 31 years, Young Art has raised more than £1,350,000 towards vital research into childhood cancers and clinical trials at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, an achievement made possible through the generosity and participation of young artists.

Our art teacher, Clare Quamina, said of the event:

Of the three students involved, Rose received a Highly Commended, and Taesha received a Second Prize for Printmaking. Professor Christopher Orr, Printmaker and Royal Academician, presented the awards. It was a great evening, and we are very proud of all the students.

I was also lucky enough to receive the Teachers’ Prize for Printmaking!

Congratulations to the students whose work was chosen and thank you to Clare Quamina for nurturing artistry in our students. It was a pleasure to take part alongside other young artists to support such an important cause.
