Arty 10-year-old Felix Chadwick-Histed had always enjoyed painting, but his parents couldn’t believe it when the Royal Academy of Arts in London asked to show one of his paintings!
Felix’s picture, called Trees, was inspired by what he sees every day on his way to school. It took him about 8 hours to complete.
The Royal Academy has held its summer show every year since 1769, and thousands of famous painters have had their work shown in that time.
This year, paintings by Felix, Poppy Sendell (10) and Maximilian Ghose (9) will be on display at the exhibition in London. Organisers think the talented trio are the youngest painters in the Academy’s 244-year history.
Tickets for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition cost £3 for 8 to 11-year-olds, and they’re free for children aged 7 and under.
