COCKWOOD SCHOOL WERE AWARDED THE TEIGNBRIDGE DECORATIVE & FINE ARTS SOCIETY YOUNG ARTS GRANT OF £500

The Project:  Italian inspired printing

KS2 pupils are using the grant to undertake a project which was inspired by Italian architecture using ideas from Renaissance artists to inspire their sketching.  From these sketches they will then produce string printing cards from some detail they have found on a part of the architecture they have sketched.

They will be given the experience of working with an artist to create their own individual piece of lasting art, by printing their designs  onto fabric.

The grant will enable the school to purchase printing equipment and provide instruction from a professional artist to work alongside the teacher who will then use these skills to work alongside other classes so that the whole shcool benefits from the project.

NADFAS 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.

Young Arts Groups

Young Arts Groups are Society based. Volunteers organise regular arts related activities for members aged 8-18. Young Arts Groups usually meet about once a month and a typical programme might include practical, creative workshops and gallery visits.

Young Arts Projects

NADFAS Societies conduct a wide range of Young Arts Projects ranging from running arts awards to funding artists in residence in primary schools.
