THE ARTS SOCIETY SOUTHAMPTON

As part of our commitment to young arts,we have an ongoing link with the art department at Richard Taunton Sixth Form College where we sponsor an annual art prize, chosen by two of the committee in conjunction with the Head of Art and presented at the annual Founders Day’s celebration. 

200 students take arts courses at A level at the college, including fine art, photography, graphic design & textiles. The College invites all our members to their abnnual display of student art work and raises awareness of The Arts Society amongst the staff, students and parents. 

From time to time, we make grants to organisations & schools working with young people in the arts. These have included sponsorship of the Young persons' Activity Guide at Southampton City Art Gallery & , in Summer 2018 , we agreed, in partnership with Hampshire & Isle of Wight Area Arts Society to pay for a coat trolley for the use of school groups visiting the gallery.
