Freddie’s artwork selected for prestigious Royal Academy of Art exhibition
A Year 7 student’s artistic talent has been recognised by the Royal Academy of Art who have selected his artwork from thousands of entries for their Young Artists summer show. Freddie Barnham heard about the competition from his Aunty and on a snowy winter’s day he sat at his table and decided to paint the view through his window using oil paints. Living near the River Swale, Freddie has a stunning view of the river and trees and beautifully captured the scene.
The Art competition is open to young artists aged 5-19 years old who are studying in the UK or British schools overseas. This year, the judges, a panel of artist and art professionals, were overwhelmed with more than 33,000 submissions.
Freddie said: “Art has always been one of my favourite subjects and I love choosing the right colours for different types of artwork. Some of my family members are very good artists so I have been influenced by Art since I was very young. I particularly enjoy creating landscapes.”
We can’t wait to see Freddie’s artwork showcased on the Royal Academy of Arts virtual gallery which will be launched online on 13th July. You can find out more about the event HERE
