WHO ARE WE?
Access For All
We are a group of volunteers who are members of The Arts Society Nadder Valley. We have formed a dedicated group to create an arts programme that covers a broad range of arts ranging from music, theatre, comic design, to sculpture photography, painting and everything in-between and that is accessible to all young people across the Nadder Valley.
Matthew Burt Furniture have very generously agreed to sponsor us for three years and the Arts Society Nadder Valley has also provided funding.
ARTS PROGRAMME FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
Access for All
Working with local artists and local venues, we organise workshops for young people to explore and create. These have included wildlife sculpture with Mark Coreth and 'a walk on the wild side' with Francesca Bex.
We also work with local groups to enrich the local provision of arts. Working with Tisbury Junior Arts Group, we organised a drama day led by Salisbury Playhouse and we funded prizes for an art class at the Tisbury Horticultural Summer Open Show. We have also purchased screen printing equipment and led a workshop for a Fovant youth group.
Please get in touch using the contact form below if you have any ideas for future projects or want to get involved in Young Arts.
SUPPORTING LOCAL SCHOOLS
Access for All
We work with local schools to provide financial and organisational support for visits and workshops that enrich the children's experience of the arts. These have included whole school printing workshops, a trip to the American Museum (Bath) and a workshop on the theme of Islands which explored art by Canaletto, Gaugin, Christo, Rousseau and a beautiful piece by an indigenous artist from Baffin Island (Canada).
