ARCHIVE - YOUNG ART

2015-16 season

2012-13 season

During the 2012 -13 season Nerja DFAS undertook an arts project to support a local secondary school.

After meeting the Heads of English and Art at the school and discussing their requirements, DFAS Committee agreed to assist in the following ways:

  • provide Art classes with English Artists;
  • an Excursion to Malaga to the Thyssen and CAC;
  • to allow up to 5 pupils to attend a lecture, accompanied by a teacher;
  • to host an exhibition of the pupils' work.
At various times during the academic year, art classes for different age groups were arranged and conducted with artist Olivia Garner. During the latter part of the academic year, classes in papier mache were arranged with artist Coby Bloemsma.

It was a most exciting and rewarding project for all concerned and Nerja DFAS would like to express its gratitude to ColArt for their donation of all the art materials used in the project and also to NADFAS House, London for their generous grant.

We had wonderful publicity by John Peatey of the Costa del Sol News. Please see the articles below.
