TALENTED YOUNG ARTISTS ON SHOW

The fifteenth annual Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Schools Art Competition and Exhibition takes place now until 30 June at Leighton House Museum

Budding young artists have captured a variety of heart-warming and colourful depictions of everyday life with over 80 pieces on show at the gallery, selected by the participating schools rather than the individuals themselves.

The competition, which encourages children and young people to pursue and develop their interests and talents in art, is open to youngsters who attend school within the Royal Borough. Entries encompassed textiles, wood, metal or ceramic, photography and digital art, sculpture, painting and drawing.
