Our first Young Arts project involved a collaboration between Magic Lantern, an educational arts charity, and The Cambridge School, a Special Needs School in Shepherd's Bush.

Matthew Sanders, the director of Magic Lantern, gave a short presentation on the work of the charity before our November lecture.

The Cambridge School  is also setting up a Sensory Garden/Outdoor Space for the pupils. We have agreed to donate £500 to provide seating in the garden.

We funded two Magic Lantern sessions at Old Oak School, a state primary school in Acton. This initial contact led on to us funding a project where children at the school have worked with an  artist to paint a shipping container which will be used to sell surplus food collected from local businesses and supermarkets to the local community. 

We also intend to provide financial support to Hounslow Music Service which provides musical education to state schools in the borough. We are delighted to have been able to purchase a much needed clarinet for them in Summer 2018 and we will shortly be sponsoring a choir competition which will involve all the primary schools in the borough.

The Arts Society provides children and young people with exciting opportunities to get involved in creative arts activities. Our work with young people builds a lasting enthusiasm for the arts and an awareness of arts heritage and its conservation. Young Arts opportunities are organised by individual Societies. Some Societies have on-going Young Arts Groups while others fund one-off Young Arts Projects.
