The Arts Society and Young Arts

The Arts Society provides children and young people with exciting opportunities to get involved in creative arts activities encouraging them to form a lasting enthusiasm for the arts and an awareness of arts heritage and its conservation.

Young Arts opportunities are organised by individual Societies.  Some Societies have on-going Young Arts Groups while others fund one-off Young Arts Projects.

EDFAS is committed to supporting Young Arts. We fund student bursaries at Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh), providing additional annual funding throughout the duration of the individual student’s course, as well as financial support to Leith School of Art and a variety of Young Arts projects within Scotland.  Details are regularly reported in the EDFAS bi-annual Newsletter and more information is available by contacting our Young Arts Representative:
