Calling budding young artists!

The Fostering Network is looking for budding artists to share their work on the theme of ‘transitions’ as part of one of our innovative education programmes.

London Fostering Achievement is inviting young people living with foster families who are members of The Fostering Network to share their artwork with us by entering our exciting new competition: The Transition Project! 

The Transition Project urges young people to create a piece of artwork or photography to do with change, in particular, change in education. This might be the first day at school, moving to a different school, changing from primary to secondary school, leaving school or another transition time.  

We welcome anyone to join in with The Transition Project, and there will be a prize for each of the following age groups:

  • Under 6
  • 7-11
  • 12-15
  • 16+

The work will be judged by The Fostering Network and two Fine Art lecturers from University Campus Suffolk. The chosen work will be displayed in The Fostering Network head office and four lucky artists will win a £25 voucher for The Works.

Zoe Witherington, a young ambassador for The Fostering Network, is leading the project and is looking forward to seeing the entries come in: “We want children and young people to explore what transitions mean to them. Most commonly these transitions will be starting school, changing schools or even changing classes in schools, but they can touch on any subject they wish.”

Entries can be produced with pencils, paints, charcoal, a camera or any other material. Zoe adds, “Don’t worry if you’re not usually the arty type, just give it a go and see what masterpiece you come up with!”
