2024 online exhibition now open

From ninja horses to dogs in love, bacon in the forest to giggles in the breeze, the artists featured in the sixth year of the Young Artists’ Summer Show have amazed us once again.

More than 21,000 students participated this year, thanks to the commitment of teachers, parents and guardians who are championing the role of art in education. Our judges were overwhelmed by the insight, imagination and inspiration in the artworks they saw as they selected the 510 artworks now exhibited online.

Rebecca Salter, President of the RA, has awarded a variety of prizes to this year’s artists and you can vote for your favourite artworks in our annual People’s Choice Award.

Made by students aged 4–19 across the UK, this exhibition is a showcase and celebration of the skill and creativity of young artists.
