REcreative for students 16s and over
REcreative is a new platform for students over 16 to upload their art work in order to share and discuss online with other young people. A Level Art teachers are encouraging students to upload their work onto this website so that they are in touch with galleries and art news and can gain monthly opportunities to meet artists, gain some experience or simply get hold of free tickets for exhibitions in London. The site can also be used as an online tool for students to keep a record of course projects and discuss their workings out with the REcreative community.
It has been developed by a group of young people in collaboration with the South London Gallery, the Hayward Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts, Tate Britain and the Whitechapel Gallery.
The site provides behind-the-scenes access to the contemporary art world through exclusive interviews with technicians, conservators and curators, through to artists, designers and critics.

REcreative is devised by young people as part of the Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project.
