Reuben's painting chosen for Royal Academy of Arts exhibition

Reuben's painting chosen for Royal Academy of Arts exhibition

One of our budding artists in Year 6 received some very exciting news last week from the Royal Academy of Arts. Reuben's painting, 'Old Barn in a Snowdrift' which was painted during lockdown, has been chosen from over 33,000 entries, to be displayed in their Young Artists' Summer Show. 

The exhibition will feature artwork by students aged 5-19, who study in the UK and British schools overseas. Artworks were judged by artists and art professionals and the final choices, including Reuben's painting, will be displayed both online and at the Royal Academy, from 13 July - 8 August. 

Reuben's favourite medium to work with is watercolour and he said, 'I loved the challenge of painting the trees and creating weathered effects on the paint of the barn panels.'

The online exhibition can be viewed from 13 July, or visit the London show to see the artworks selected, from 13 July - 8 August: Young Artists' Summer Show 2021 | Exhibition | Royal Academy of Arts
