The aim of the Art Society Steyning, is to inspire young people with a lasting enthusiasm for the Arts and an awareness of our Arts Heritage and Conservation.

We have already supported students at West Dean college and continued to offered prizes to students at the Grammar School Art Exhibition.

In 2016 we funded an Artist in Residence drawing & painting workshop for Year10 students at Steyning Grammar School, which was our first contact with the school.

Subsequently in 2017 we  funded an 'Identity' workshop at the Steyning Primary School .

Also in the same year we funded a Screen Printing Workshop once again for Year10 students.

All these workshops have been a great success and we, as a society, are continuing to encourage both schools with valuable art experiences for young people.

We have a similar programme planned for 2018.
