The aim of Young arts is to encourage young people to develop creative skills and an interest in the arts. During recent years we have worked with children of all ages and abilities, including those with learning difficulties and special needs. Recent projects led by resident artists, sponsored by BDFAS, have included work with textiles and ceramics.
Children at Claremont Primary School Manchester last year were working on an Islamic Art project with the artist Deedee Dewar. The project was funded by Bowdon DFAS. See below the finished work in situ! Underneath are sections completed by different groups of children.
