Young Arts / Sale of Art Books
27 May 2022
The Society is very keen to support schools and young people in Wensleydale. In the past our activities have included arranging workshops delivered by external artists, submitting art by A Level students to The Royal Society of British Artists annual exhibition, creating colouring booklets for a local museum and selling second-hand art books to contribute to the funding of these projects. The Society's Young Arts Representative retired in 2020 and we are hoping to have a replacement on our committee soon.
In the meantime, we are re-starting the sale of second-hand art books on lecture days. All donations of art books will be gratefully received. Further details to follow.
