Young Arts volunteers fundraise and give grants to arts projects for children and young people in their local area. In a time of cuts and changes to the national curriculum, this has never been more important. This group of volunteers aims to give more children and young people access to the arts.

Working with schools, museums and youth groups, Young Arts volunteers support a wide range of projects. They are passionate about the benefits that creativity and arts education can bring to children in early life and adolescence.

If you are passionate about helping more children have the opportunity to discover the arts,contact your local Society and ask to speak to the Young Arts representative to find out more about how to become a volunteer.

2015 Primary School Art Project

In 2015 we financed a £500 art project at a local primary school in Rugby.  The school, Northlands Primary School, is in the middle of Rugby and space is very limited.  They contacted us for help in funding some mosaics and pottery figures to enliven the school surroundings.  We contacted a local potter, Lesley French, who went into the school and worked with every child from reception to year six.  They were all very enthusiastic, as can be seen from this photo of the year two class with Lesley in the middle and our current Chair Fiona Moore on the left.
