Young Arts Projects are arts-related activities sponsored or organised by the local branches of The Arts Society. They can be for the benefit of individuals or a number of young people. There is no set format for Young Arts Projects; instead, local Societies respond to local circumstances. A Society's involvement may be anything from sponsorship to hands-on organisation. Many involve partnerships with other local and national bodies. We have found that even a small grant can make a big difference. 

In the summer term 2018, two members of the Committee visited Colchester Sixth Form College, Colchester County High School for Girls and Colchester Royal Grammar School to view displays of artworks by A Level students.  They were impressed by the quality and the range of the artworks exhibited.  A number of outstanding pieces of work were recognised with awards of £25.  These awards were presented to the students at the first lecture of the autumn term by Founder Chairman Kay Abbott and by the Committee member for Young Arts, Lynda Milne.

Some of the paintings have also been forwarded to The Arts Society for selection for the RBA 2019 Annual Exhibition at The Mall Galleries, London.  Our gallery pages display more works by young artists studying in Colchester.  To view them, click here.
