Young Artists’ Summer Show 2020

Clore Learning Centre

19 Oct — 10 Jan 2021

Inspired by the RA’s iconic Summer Exhibition, the Young Artists’ Summer Show brings together work by primary and secondary-level students from across the UK and beyond.

The RA is closed due to coronavirus restrictions, and will reopen when government guidance allows.

For ticket enquiries or to move tickets to future dates, please contact us on 0207 300 8090 or tickets@royalacademy.org.uk, 10am – 5pm.

Artists are at the heart of everything we do – we’ve been championing them since 1768 and firmly believe in nurturing young talent.

Last year, we launched our first Young Artists’ Summer Show which is back for a second year and curated by Cathie Pilkington RA, artist and Keeper of the RA Schools. We received more than 17,700 inspiring and inventive submissions from artists aged 5 to 19 – and our expert panel of judges whittled it down to 392 artworks, all of which are available to view online with a selection of works in the on-site exhibition in the Clore Learning Centre. It’s a unique opportunity to encounter ambitious work from some of today’s most promising young artists.
