Young Artists' Summer Show

The Royal Academy recently hosted an exhibition of visual work by children from UK primary and secondary schools. Don't worry, you're not the only one who missed it, and you can still see an interesting range of children's work on the gallery's site.

As a beginning art teacher you should aim to redress this balance. WePresent is an interesting source of ideas and images drawn from a wide range of contemporary sources.
