Welcome to The aARTvark Gallery. This is our online exhibition space which we frequently update with new work, including learner achievements and winning entries of competitions. If you would like your work to be part of our gallery, please email us at theaartvark@protonmail.com

Are you an artist looking to spread awareness of your work? We are always looking to inspire our community and promote great works of art or photography. Whatever your trade, we can post images and captions of your work in our aARTvark Gallery, which is a great way to boost recognition. If you are searching for an artist, use the search bar at the top of the page (piece of cake)

This page features The aARTvark artist's achievements and work. Visit our Portfolio Gallery, to see excellent examples of our learner's sketchbook work, and our Artists Gallery for artwork of practitioners we promote.

Gargoyles & Grotesques

(See left) A gargoyle created by a KS3 member. Do you know the difference between Gargoyles and Groteques? Gargoyles are essentially glorified gutters, shooting water from their mouths. Groteques are frantic looking monsters, angels if you like, guarding the gates to heaven... These gruesome little fiends are made of air drying clay, painted with free-flow acrylic and finished with matt varnish (to keep them waterproof)
