Arts Sponsorship - October 2010
In looking for ways in which Cranleigh DFAS can spread wider than our current
support for Young Arts in individual local schools, we have been in discussion
with Cranleigh Arts Centre with a view to sponsoring their annual "Big Draw"
season which occurs each October.
As a result, we have been delighted to sponsor their lantern project
this October. Every day during Half Term at least sixty children - together with
assorted parents and grandparents - were involved in the creation of
spectacular porcelain lanterns which were displayed in a memorable "black
box"exhibition in the gallery at the end of the project.
We intend this to be the start of a long and mutually beneficial
co-operation which aims to foster the artistic talents of our local youngsters.
These photographs are but a pale record of the magical effect that was
produced this year.
