The Crowd, a group of painted figures by Year 5 pupils

Three Artworks Accepted For Prestigious Young Artists' Summer Show

We are proud to reveal that Heath Mount artworks have once again been chosen to appear at The Royal Academy Young Artists' Summer Show - selected by the judges from over 21,000 submissions. Year 5's group piece, The Crowd, has been accepted into the main show and each pupil will be invited to attend a private viewing at the famous Piccadilly gallery before it opens to the public. This delightful crowd of 66 figures was inspired by the work of ceramicist Jane Muir and painter LS Lowry (himself a member of the Royal Academy).

Also featuring in the main exhibition is Year 3 pupil George's Blue Dragon, a fiery depiction of a dragon drawn using an iPad and the Pro-Create app.  Dhyan in Year 6, meanwhile,will see his humorous sculpture Liberty Ken feature in the online exhibition.

Congratulations go to all of our young artists and to the art department on this wonderful achievement. We have been privileged to have work included in every Young Artists' Summer Show since it launched six years ago.

The exhibition is open to the public from July 16th until August 11th.
