Young Arts AIMS: To inspire young people with lasting enthusiasm for the Arts To encourage an awareness for Arts Heritage and Conservation CROXTON KERRIAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL PROJECT This is an exciting and unusual project, bringing to the attention of young and old the results of an archaeological dig on an important mediæval/Anglo Saxon site in Croxton Kerrial. The project is planned to run from July 2017-July 2018 and will aim to disseminate the archæological finds from the dig and their historical, cultural and artistic/design significance to local school audiences, the local community and district.  Materials to be created will include a professionally executed visual moving drone site survey and 3D artwork/modelling.  Children will also be invited to participate in a dig. See details of recent activity at Croxton Kerrial. YOUNG ARTS PROJECT: ARTIST'S WORKSHOP AT LINCOLN CATHEDRAL 10 students from Walton Girl's' High School spent a highly inspirational day with artist Charlotte Mann on a day visit to Lincoln Cathedral on the 10th of May 2017.  The purpose of the day was for Walton Girls to travel to the Cathedral for a workshop with a professional artist, aiming to inspire the students to use the building as a resource for their art work, be it photography, painting, textiles, etc.  The Arts Society Grantham contributed the cost of the artist, and Paradigm Arts funded the coach to Lincoln.  Head of the Visual Arts Faculty at Walton, Laura Simpson, reported that the girls found the day immensely helpful:- “The girls really got so much out of it, it really changed their perceptions and opened them up to new ways of thinking.” MOSAIC PROJECT BARKSTON & SYSTON SCHOOL The Arts Society Grantham supported a project with Barkston & Syston Primary School, providing the schoolchildren a day's expert training in mosaic-making, enabling them to create a large mosaic on the theme “School Values”.  In June 2016, children from year 5/6 visited the “Hub” (National Centre for Craft & Design) in Sleaford to tour the Centre, and attend a drawing class and a workshop on mosaic-making.  They had a fun day and learned a lot The schoolchildren developed their own design and spent hours laying down the tiles.  They were very excited about their project and worked hard to get it right.    This mosaic is now displayed permanently in the newly- refurbished school foyer which was inaugurated on  17th January 2017.  It even features a painstakingly tiled GADDFAS logo in the bottom right- hand corner!
