Celebrating Talented Young Artists

The ‘Exhibition of Young Local Artists’, which is hosted by Warwick School, was established in 1985...

.....and started with just five schools. Thirty-three years on, the exhibition has grown and this year, 28 local primary schools took part.

This event brings together local primary schools to celebrate art and showcase young talent.

Certainly, based on the reception the work received, we are looking at a bright and creative future for the Arts in Warwickshire.”
