Success for Chandlings at Young Art Oxford
Chandlings Prep had over 40 artworks displayed at Young Art Oxford for their 2022 art exhibition.
Young Art Oxford is an annual art exhibition open to all Oxfordshire schools with children from any year between Reception to Year 9. It is a wonderful opportunity for young aspiring artists to have their work judged by well known professionals and artists and to exhibit at the prestigious Ashmolean Museum. Each year the children have a different theme on which to base their art with this year’s theme being ‘Dreams’.
This year all the children from Year 1 to Year 6 painted artworks from which 44 were chosen to be displayed at the Ashmolean. Amongst these Chandlings also had two Highly Commended, five Commended and a big congratulations to Sebastian in Year 6 who came second in the Year 5 & 6 category.
Pippa Prosser, Head of Art at Chandlings said, “We enter the Young Art Oxford competition as not only does it encourage creative responses to a new theme each year, but also allows the children to actively raise funds for Cancer Research UK. The knowledge that their work may be chosen to be exhibited at the Ashmolean Museum, makes this a very exciting competition for our children to enter!”
Christine Cook, Head of Chandlings added, “We are very proud of our children’s achievement. Our ethos is all about having a balance between academic, creative and outdoor education. The aim of the Art Department at Chandlings is to create an inspiring environment where each child’s creativity is developed, enhanced and celebrated. Enquiring, creative minds are positively encouraged! “
