Young Arts is an initiative of the Arts Society which aims to inspire young people with a lasting enthusiasm for the arts together with an awareness of our immense cultural and artistic heritage.

Local Schools  Members of the committee are showing the 5 photos selected to be displayed at Sandford St Martins school, Sandford, Wareham out of a selection of over 100 photos taken by year 1 pupils aged 5/6 years old while enjoying a day with wildlife photographer Iain Green in the grounds of the school. It was difficult to select as there were so many good pictures. The whole event was sponsored by our society.

Golden Lecture   Following last years success of the Golden lecture held to celebrate 50 years of the Arts Society, we have decided to hold another lecture for 6th form arts students in our local secondary schools. This year we have joined forces with other local societies, Poole, Wimborne and Blandford and Wimborne Evening. As with last year the lecture  with the kind permission of the arts university bournemouth, it is being held in their magnificent main lecture hall, followed by tea in their refectory.  Our lecturer will again be Linda Smith however the subject is a little bit of 20th century sculpture .
