About Art on Show

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Schools ‘Art on Show’ project celebrates work produced within schools in the borough, and aims to encourage children and young people to pursue and develop their interests and talents in art. Art on Show 2017 took place at the iconic venue The Tabernacle in North Kensington, as part of InTRANSIT 2017.

Over 400 artworks in a range of mediums were submitted to the competition from students aged 3 to 18 years via schools and colleges across the borough. Artworks shortlisted by a panel of judges were mounted and framed, and curated for display in a beautiful exhibition at The Tabernacle. The Exhibition was open to the public from 15 June to 9 July 2017. Competition prizes were awarded to students by local galleries and arts organisations across a range of categories.

Shortlisted artworks from previous years are available to view in an online gallery.
