Decorative & Fine Arts Society

THE ARTS SOCIETY Young Arts Groups provide 8-18 year olds with a broad range of opportunities to engage with the arts.

Young Arts activities include:

  • working with arts professionals
  • developing skills in researching, presenting, time-management and team-work
  • museum guiding
  • entering the NADFAS Chairman's Competition

Some Young Arts participants also have the opportunity to become accredited by the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.

Bushey DFAS has worked with the Bushey Museum and others to encourage young children's participation in the arts.  For example, we contributed towards a new edition of Anna Sewell's Black Beauty arranged by the museum and more recently to a Mosaic project in a local school.
