Young Artists United

This project was designed to focus on the creative responses of young people by arranging access to  professional artists within their local community whom they would be unlikely to encounter otherwise. A group of six teenagers aged 15-19 were given a project brief which involved choosing a local artist’s work, visiting their studio and creating a piece of work as a response to the visit. The final artwork was exhibited as part of a larger exhibition, Artists United, involving 40 artists, sculptors and photographers. This was a fundraising exhibition to support Lewes Football Club’s transition to a community-owned club at The Foundry Gallery, Lewes in July 2010. The students work was for sale alongside the other professional artists in the exhibition
