Dear Parents and Carers,
RE: Royal Academy Young Artists Summer Show 2021
Kelvin Grove will once again be taking part in the Royal Academy’s Young Artists’ Summer Show competition. The competition offers primary and secondary school children an exciting opportunity to exhibit their artwork at the RA – on site and online in July 2021.
Prizes will be awarded for two inspiring artworks from each key stage, as chosen by President of the Royal Academy, Christopher le Brun. Students will receive vouchers for art materials plus a free practical workshop for their school. There will also be a People’s Choice award, where members of the public can vote for their favourite artwork.
All children aged 5+ can enter and pupils can submit up to 3 artworks each. There are no restrictions on what the children can make, 2D or 3D works will be accepted and any medium is welcome. Artworks can be created previously, at home or at school and can be made by an individual or a collaborative project. The Royal Academy only ask that works be original and do not infringe upon any copyrights. Take your time creating and have fun with it!
If your child would like to enter the competition, submissions must include: name, class, age, title of artwork, medium used and a short description of the work being submitted – this can be to explain about the artwork and why you made it. Entries need to be handed in by Friday 23rd April 2021 at the latest. All artworks should be delivered to the school office with an accompanying parental consent* form.
*Please note for this competition we must have signed parental consent to submit artworks by the children, any works handed in without one can not be submitted. Forms can be downloaded from the school website or collected from the school office.
