GENEROUS DONATION: arts society awards grant to sustain community arts


The Chorleywood Fine Arts Society (CFA) has provided a grant of £250 to support the arts community in the village through the Chorleywood Community Arts Center (CCAC).

Due to the impact of COVID-19, many actors in the arts sector have suffered from funding issues.

That’s why the National Arts Society recently decided to give all its member groups, including the CFA, the opportunity to make a monetary contribution to another organization of their choice, intended to give them a boost in the reopening.

Since the CFAs often organize study days and conferences on the whole spectrum of the arts and related subjects, they decided to staff a group that represents the other side of art: its production.

So local CCAC artists were the perfect person to receive the grant, which they will now use to install bespoke dryers for its members’ paintings.

Mockie Harrison, CCAC Treasurer and Life Drawing Group Leader, said: “We are extremely grateful for this support of our artists. We have been wanting to install dryers for some time and this generous grant keeps us going!

The CCAC offers all kinds of art-related activities to Chorleywood residents, such as pottery lessons, life drawing and silk working, to name a few. It also provides an excellent workspace for artists from across the village, accommodating people of all ages and abilities.
