PUBLISHED: 10:14 17 June 2019
A pupil from a Harpenden primary school has had her work accepted to be displayed at the first ever Young Artists Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London.
Hannah, who attends St Hilda's School in Douglas Road, had her sculpture 'Dropped Ice Cream' accepted from over 6,000 entries. Her work is one of just 139 pieces to be displayed at the exhibition.
She said: "I am so amazed and excited and I can't wait to take my family to see the exhibition over the summer."
Julia Rigby, head of art at St Hilda's, said: "Hannah's sculpture was inspired by our work on the pop artists and she made the sculpture from recycled materials.
"We are all really excited for Hannah. It is so special for anyone, but especially a child, to see their work displayed at such a prestigious location."
The exhibition runs at the Royal Academy from Sunday, July 14 to Sunday, August 4.
