Young Arts News September 2018
As we approach the start of new ADFAS season, your Committee is very pleased to report that we have had an extremely successful year on the Young Arts front.
Within the last twelve months we have supported young artists in the Dacorum area with grants totalling £3,250. This sum has been generated by recovering the Gift Aid on our members’ subscriptions – something we are able to do as a result of being one of a minority of societies within The Arts Society orbit to be a Registered Charity.
Included in these figures are:
* Three bursaries to successful A-level Arts students starting further study at College
* Support for Art Departments at three local schools in the area
> Potten End Primary School – Art materials
> Tring School - Easels
> John F Kennedy School, Hemel Hempstead – ongoing materials for the printing press ADFAS funded last year
* Dumfries House Youth Training Scheme – Glasgow (following our annual residential visit earlier this year when we were impressed by their work)
* Financial Support to the annual Dacorum Young Artists exhibition
We thought you would like to see some of the art work from the students that we are supporting.
