MENU THE ARTS SOCIETY WOKINGHAM

 

As part of our Young Arts programme of projects this year we have supported an art therapy project for 8 to 11 year olds at High Close School. The children have worked with a local potter, Grant Pratt, to produce clay plaques  which he has incorporated into a tree design covering the corner of one of the classroom blocks - see photo. 

The children thoroughly enjoyed not only working with Grant at High Close but also visiting his studio to see how their individual plaques were fired in the kiln.

At Bracknell and Wokingham College we have funded Certificates of Achievement and prizes for students who have shown the most improvement in art and photography throughout the year. The two winning students were presented with their prizes at the end of term. 

We have also donated a bursary and have helped to buy portfolios and a tripod for the photography department. We hope that this is the beginning of an on-going partnership with the college.

We are also funding an under 18s prize and trophy for the best photograph depicting 'Service to Others in Wokingham' as part of the 2018 'Love Wokingham' Photography Competition’.

Please note that the deadline for entries has been extended to 15th September.
