SUPPORTING YOUNG ARTS
Supporting young artists helps contribute to the development of creative, cognitive, communication and social skills. Our Young Arts volunteers actively support the local schools in their work and aim to give both recognition and to promote children and young people’s art.
Currently we have a good relationship with Sandwich Technology School, Sir Roger Manwood’s School and Sandwich Infants School. This has included supporting their annual art exhibitions and awarding prizes to GCSE and A Level students and to children at Sandwich Infants School.
More can be done locally with more Young Arts Volunteers so please get involved. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Supporting Local GCSE and A Level Art Students 2022
The annual presentation of Awards to GCSE and A Level students from The Sandwich Technology School and Sir Roger Manwoods School took place on Monday October 2nd. We were delighted that the Mayor of Sandwich, Councillor Paul Carter, presented the prizes and certificates. Members, student artists and families admired the display of their work which included textiles, prints, paintings and sculptures. Their creativity, imagination and skill was admired by all who attended. Congratulation to all the artists!
Sandwich Infants School 2023
On 14th March we were again delighted to be invited to judge the All School Annual Art exhibition at Sandwich Infants School. This is the fifth year we have been involved and we were not disappointed. Committee members, Mirahny Manning, Christine Ratcliffe, and Cally Vaile were joined by member Barbara Wiggins and we had the joyous, but very difficult task of choosing the six ‘winners’. The subject was Animals 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. The winners were presented with certificates, and their achievement will be acknowledged at the school assembly.
Once again we had the privilege of supporting GCSE and A Level art students at Sandwich Technology School and Sir Roger Manwood’s School. The art included photography, paintings, sculpture, batik and printing. The standard of art at both schools is very high as demonstrated at both the schools annual exhibitions.
This made selecting prize winners a difficult task. The prizes included the Most Promising Student, the Arts Society Sandwich. The Mayor of Sandwich also donated a prize..
We appreciate the warm welcome from both schools.
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).
