Young Arts continues to support Scarborough Hospital Duke of Kent Children's Ward.
We have recently donated a set of creative play kitchen/baking equipment to support the play room's new role play area.
In the playroom the children are able to experience 3D modelling using a variety of art materials, and the tools we have provided for them, to produce cakes, biscuits, fruit and vegetables etc to bake and use in role play in their new kitchen!
We have also donated three colouring books, the content of which is specifically aimed at the older and teenage patients on the ward. These provide relaxing, stimulating and achievable artistic experiences for those children who may be confined to bed.
Young Arts has also continued to support The Street in Scarborough with a donation of 50 pounds to be used by the Prevention Service in their work with young people in the Scarborough area.
Our donation will buy materials for an Autumn project on tie dyeing, and using their resulting material for personalized designs on clothing.
Arts has continued to liaise with the
North Yorkshire County Council
Connecting Youth Culture Group based at
The Street in Scarborough. This drop in
centre is youth led for disadvantaged
young people from 11 to 18 years of age
in the Scarborough area.
Young Arts participated in an arts
project entitled 'The Coast', in which
the young people worked collaboratively
to produce a series of designs based on
fossils and, in April 2016, we made a
donation of coffee table art books to be
kept at The Street. These books were
chosen for the interest and enjoyment of
the young people.
Whilst maintaining our links with The
Street, Young Arts is now also
supporting Scarborough Hospital's Duke
of Kent Children's Ward, providing age
appropriate art and craft materials for
the children to enjoy. The ward has beds
for up to 14 children from birth to 16
years of age and the play worker
provides daily activities for children
who are in-patients, either in the
playroom or at the bedside. Children in
the adjoining outpatients department can
also access the playroom and enjoy the
facilities that Scarborough Young Arts
Arts Society Scarborough planned to
support James Koppert, Area Arts
Co-ordinator for North Yorkshire's
Connecting Youth Culture, with the
work that he does with The Street in
Scarborough for future Young Arts
Projects. The Street is a
world class youth and community
facility based on voluntary,
community and youth services.
Each week hundreds of people visit
The Street for training, sports,
work, arts or simply a place to
socialise. There is an art
studio and The Arts Society
Scarborough propose to support The
Street by donating some Art
reference books and we are hoping to
help James Koppert with his efforts
to bring the enjoyment and
appreciation of Art to the
disadvantaged young people of
Scarborough in the future.
artistically talented young people aged
between 11 and 16 years were selected by
James Koppert, the Young Arts
Co-ordinator for North Yorkshire's
Connecting Youth Culture, to attend Ken
Wood's art studio where they were able
to look around the works of art and then
were given a short lesson on drawing in
charcoal from life. Ken Wood had
arranged for a model in evening dress to
sit for the class, and a live model was
something they had not experienced
before. We presented each young
person with a certificate of merit from
The Arts Society Scarborough, a copy of
the very colourful quarterly magazine
with its many inspiring illustrations,
and a ten pound W H Smith voucher for
art materials or books. Ken Wood
selected two drawings which he felt were
of greatest merit and we awarded as
first prize a book on drawing with a
presentation gift plate from The Arts
Society Scarborough and presented the
runner up with a sketch book and
Society featured our 2012 Young Arts
Project on its website, showing two
