Art challenge for under-12s in lockdown

Artists aged under 12 and stuck at home in virus-enforced lockdown are being invited to take part in a competition to support a medical charity.

Dealer and television art detective Philip Mould has joined forces with the portrait painter Lorna May Wadsworth to support the Bourlet Framers’ Young Masters devised by Richard Rendell of Bourlet Frames.

Founded in 1825 Bourlet’s is one of the world’s oldest framers, and the competition is in aid of the Cavell Nurses’ Trust, set up in 1917 to help nurses with financial, physical or mental health issues.

The winning Young Master will have their artwork set in a handmade Bourlet frame and hung alongside genuine Old Master paintings at the Philip Mould Gallery in London. They will get a paid trip to London for them and their family to see the painting in situ on Pall Mall and £150 worth of vouchers to spend at the Cass Art artists’ materials store plus £150 of spending money.

To enter, post a photo of the artwork on Instagram before Friday 1st May and use the hashtag #BourletYoungMasters. The artworks will be judged by Mould, Wadsworth and painter Davina Jackson, with the winner announced on Tuesday, May 5th.
