Young Arts Projects

Mid Kent DFAS funds art projects in local primary schools as part of the continuing aim to encourage children to enjoy and become interested in the Arts. We have also funded an artist in residence in these schools and Mid Kent DFAS members have helped with the projects.We are always looking for further opportunities to support art in schools, so if you know of schools which might be interested, please contact us.
