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. We aslo sponsor appropriate pieces of work for entry into the Royal Society of British Artists exhibition.

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.
