Supporting young artists helps contribute to the development of creative, cognitive, communication and social skills. Young Arts Volunteers aim to support children and young people in the world of art, and promote their work.
Currently we have a good relationship with Sandwich Technology School, Sir Roger Manwood's School and the Phoenix Centre. This has included supporting their annual art exhibitions and awarding prizes to GCSE and A Level students and to members of the Phoenix Youth Project.
More can be done locally with more Young Arts Volunteers....so please get involved.
Sandwich Infants School
For the second year we were invited to judge and present prizes and certificates to eight pupils. Once again a very difficult task for Sue Fitzgerald and Pam May to choose from over 200 self portraits…which were then displayed at St Peters Church during Sandwich Arts Week.
Sandwich Junior School
We were invited to run a Workshop during International Week. The theme was on India, and the students created multimedia works of art using a range of materials. It was an informative experience for both the students and Sue Fitzgerald. A sample of the works was displayed at St Peters Church during sandwich Arts Week.
Sandwich Arts Week
For the fourth year we were proud to be invited to select prize winners from the Sandwich Technology and Sir Roger Manhoods schools at their annual GCSE/A level art exhibitions. The standard of art was very high as much admired by visitors to St Peters Church exhibition during Sandwich Arts Week. The prize winners were presented with their prize and certificate by the Mayor of Sandwich, Councillor Franklin at our lecture evening in October.
