Enter the Black Swan Arts Young Open

Calling all Young Artists!

Do you enjoy painting, sculpture, jewellery, pottery, drawing, model-making, photography, graphic design, animation, 3D printing, in fact any form of creative art?

Are you aged between 8 and 19?

Would you like to see your work on show in a professional art gallery?

If the answers are yes… enter the Young Open Art Competition 2018 and have the chance to win a one-to-one workshop with a professional artist.

The deadline for entering your artwork into the competition is 16 February 2018.

Now in its fifth year, the Black Swan Arts Young Open has become the most successful and prestigious art competition for young people in the South West, attracting hundreds of entries from individuals, schools and youth groups. Entries to the 2018 competition will be judged, curated and displayed in one of the region’s leading contemporary art galleries and, as in previous years, prizes will be awarded in three age-group categories.  These unique prizes will be in the form of one-to-one, individualised, creative workshops with practising and successful artists.

The Black Swan Young Arts Open is looking for original artwork in as many mediums or processes as possible; the more unique the better. The selection committee has been closely involved with the competition since it started and they know the extraordinary level of work the young talent in the area can produce.

This Young Open Competition demonstrates the on-going and major commitment of Black Swan Arts to the development of talent and to the building of strong links with the community, locally, regionally and nationally.

The exhibition will take place from 17th March to 7th April.
