One of the objectives of The Arts Society is to inspire young people with an enthusiasm for the Arts and to increase awareness in our arts heritage and its conservation. Individual societies are encouraged to promote high quality arts activities for young people.
Young Arts Projects
The Arts Society Mid Kent funds art projects for children and young people in local schools and the local community, as part of our continuing aim to encourage interest and enjoyment in the Arts. In the past year we have provided funds for professional artists to deliver ceramic and clay workshops to primary schoolchildren, as well as a family event at Mote Park, when children and their parents were able to make frisbees.
We hope to extend the range of funded activities to include performance art in schools and are always keen to hear about similar projects locally that we might be able to support. If you know of any, please get in touch.
Here are some recent examples of clay work and plate designs which we have sponsored at local primary schools:
