Young East Anglian Artists

Woodbridge School Prep are delighted to be hosting the 2022 Young East Anglian Artists competition and exhibition of children’s art to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

This year, we are proud to be starting our Young East Anglian Artists competition. This community event will enable us to celebrate the artwork of our young artists, whilst raising money for Cancer Research UK.

At home and in school the children are producing artwork based on this year’s theme ‘The Royal Jubilee’. If your child would like the chance to have their work exhibited, they are asked to submit their artwork (and their copyright in it) to YEAA, along with a minimum entry donation of £2.50 per child, as their contribution to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Judges will select this year’s prize-winners and you will be notified if your child has won a prize, or their picture has been selected for the exhibition. The exhibition will be held at the John Gibbins Gallery in Woodbridge from Friday 24th – Sunday 26th June.

Each exhibited artist will receive a certificate and winning artwork will be framed. Paintings at the exhibit are also available for purchase, with priority being given to the artist’s family. We know that we have many aspirational young artists within the school and are looking forward to sharing the work that they produce whilst raising money for charity.

Our judges will select this year’s prize-winners and you will be notified if your child has won a prize, or their picture has been selected for the exhibition. The exhibition will be held at the John Gibbins Gallery in Woodbridge from the 24 – 26 June 2022.

Postcards of the winners work will be for sale at the exhibition and the paintings are also available for purchase, with priority being given to the artist’s family.
