YOUNG ARTS - UPDATED NEWS

As part of the general GADFAS promotion of the arts, one of our aims is to encourage young people to take part in creative artistic activities.  We do this by supporting local schools, and groups who work specifically with children. These activities are very varied, covering not only the use of traditional materials, such as paint and paper, but also modelling with fabrics and ceramics, even using modern technology in a creative way, 'a la David Hockney'.

Thanks to the generosity of our members gift aid contributions, the committee has a small annual budget which we use to provide support funding for these schools and groups.

During the last few years many children, with the help of GADFAS, have had the opportunity to explore and develop their own artistic creativity, which is something that we take great pleasure in being able to do.
