MENU THE ARTS SOCIETY WEST OXFORDSHIRE

Young Arts is part of our charitable remit in that we offer financial and organisational support to schools and colleges.

 This could take the form of Artists in Residence, visits to local Arts centres or hardware to assist those with learning difficulties. In the last two years we have offered bus travel to the Ashmolean for young people from one secondary school and supported an Arts Exhibition to celebrate 50 years as a National Arts Society. This latter exhibition arose out of our support for the Royal Society of British Artists annual competition which entailed visiting the A level Art entries in our local schools.

We supplied a Light Table to a local Special Needs School. Our work with Primary Schools has proved most rewarding in that, in one school, the whole school suspended the timetable and all pupils had the opportunity to create a hexagonal tile which were then combined together to create a display which is now a colourful feature in the Assembly Hall.  It was first displayed in Cogges Museum

In the last two years we have also devised a well  received children’s  search trail for St Mary’s Church.

This work is ongoing and further information about this year’s projects will follow.
