Young Art Cornwall involved artworks that young artists had submitted to the competition and had either won a prize or been shortlisted. There was also a section for disabled children that enjoyed art.
It was a mixture of art forms, that I had seen before when I participated previously in the Young Art Oxford at the Ashmolean Museum which was very similar.
I think that it was nice that it was in the Tate and I also won 2nd Prize in my age category. However, where the prize giving was held was very small and cramped. The room where all the artworks were, was also quite small and got very full.
I would recommend Young Art Cornwall because it was a very enjoyable experience and I thought that holding it in the Tate made it special. It is good because it is open to young artists that want their art to be seen and everyone was very supportive.
Personally, I started working on my project, which was due for submission in September, at the start of the summer holidays. I found that by having more time to work on my drawing meant that I could keep perfecting it. This event helped me understand that I still have a lot to learn and that this learning will probably be throughout my life. Also, that there are no boundaries or limits on what art can be. Competition events are good too for bringing more people into galleries and encouraging others to be more interested in art.
