Young Art Devon is a wonderful way to encourage children’s creative talents and is an exciting opportunity for aspiring young artists to have their work judged by well known and respected artists, exhibited in public, and of course raise money for a fantastic cause.
Young Art Devon is a fundraising event for Cancer Research UK (Registered Charity No. 089464) organised by a group of volunteers. All money raised is donated to the charity’s Kids & Teens appeal, which exclusively funds research into children’s cancers. The competition has been launched across Devon.
The theme for 2019 is Our World
The exhibition will be held at the beautiful Spanish Barn at Torre Abbey from 3rd to 5th May and will be open to the general public, with an opportunity for families and friends to attend a special private opening afternoon on the Saturday. Each picture will be available to purchase, via a silent auction, with families being given priority, so everyone will have the opportunity to own their child’s art. Any work not purchased will remain in the collection of Young Art Devon.
The winners in each age category will be chosen by our panel of judges, who in 2019 are Dan Wheatley, David Norman and Becky Bettesworth. The winners will all be professionally mounted and framed.
Please join us in supporting this wonderful new venture that will celebrate the artistic endeavours of our students whilst raising vital funds for a fantastic cause.
