Young Arts

SUPPORTING YOUNG ARTS

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 2022

In April we were delighted to be invited, for the fourth time, to judge the All School Annual Art exhibition at Sandwich Infants School. Committee members, Mirahny Manning, Christine Ratcliffe and Cally Vaile had the joyous, but very difficult task of choosing the six ‘winners’.

The subject was Self Portraits which resulted in a range of expressive and creative paintings. All the participants should be congratulated on their work, as should the teaching staff who guided the pupils. There was a very high standard of work from children aged 4 to 8 years old. The winners were presented with certificates, and their achievement acknowledged at the school assembly.

The portrait paintings will be on display during Sandwich Arts Week at St Mary’s Church. (September 17-24th).
