Young Arts started in 1973, it provides exciting opportunities for children and young people to expand their horizons through their involvement in creative arts activities. We aim to inspire young people with a lasting enthusiasm for the arts and an awareness of our arts heritage and its conservation. Our activities may include hands on workshops with expert tuition, themed craft days and visits to artist's studios, galleries, museums and historic houses.

 One of the aims of The Arts Society (previously NADFAS) is to encourage the arts amoung young people and we try to do something specific each year.

For 2018/19 we have funded two projects both of which hope to complete in March 2019.

St Mary's School, Rickmansworth. A clay poppy memorial structure to celebrate 50 years since tthe  end of WW2. One poppy made by each pupil (180 in total) to be displayed outside the school.

St Meryl School, South Oxhey. Living willow weaving to create a structure for the school grounds. An artist to be involved for 2.5 days comprising 2 days for design, planning and planting with 35 year 5 pupils plus a twilight session with teachers on maintenance and and introduce the techniqe to more pupils.
