Young Arts Sponsorship - October 2010

In looking for ways in which Cranleigh DFAS can spread wider than our current support for Young Arts in individual local schools, we have been in discussion with Cranleigh Arts Centre with a view to sponsoring their annual "Big Draw" season which occurs each October.

As a result, we have been delighted to sponsor their lantern project this October. Every day during Half Term at least sixty children - together with assorted parents and grandparents - were involved in the creation of spectacular porcelain lanterns which were displayed in a memorable "black box"exhibition in the gallery at the end of the project.

We intend this to be the start of a long and mutually beneficial co-operation which aims to foster the artistic talents of our local youngsters.

These photographs are but a pale record of the magical effect that was produced this year.

Pictured here with Chairman, John Baker and Treasurer, Brian Wright, are Penny Green, ceramicist and Mary Branson, artistic advisor who jointly ran the project.
