YOUNG & COMMUNITY ARTS

The Arts Society York 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.

New Sponsorship for Young Arts

May Townsend,  the Young Arts Representative for TASY, has set up a partnership between The Arts Society York and The Danesgate Community in Fulford, York. Danesgate was established in 2010 to provide high quality education for children aged five to seventeen years old who for varying reasons do not fit in with or cope with main stream schooling.

The new project is an art competition, to be launched at the school in September, with TASY sponsoring the prizes.

Previous Projects: Young Arts Project 2014-15

In 2014-15 our lead project was with York District Hospital's Child Development Unit.  Its aim is to provide art materials and equipment in order to allow young patients and their siblings to develop their skills and understanding.  The gallery below shows some of their work.
