FHS AWARDED FIFE DECORATIVE ARTS SOCIETY FUNDING Falkland House School has been awarded £500 by Fife Decorative and Fine Arts Society (Fife DFAS).
The School will use the fund to support various art projects currently being undertaken by pupils. Fife DFAS was established in 1994 and is one of the largest arts societies in Scotland, attracting members from the River Tay to the River Forth, from St. Andrews to the East Neuk, from Kirkcaldy to Culross and beyond.
The group is part of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies, a leading charity with 90,000 members worldwide, which promotes and preserves the Arts through lectures, events, study days, visits and tours, many to places not generally open to the public. Commenting on the award, Director of Falkland House School Stuart Jacob said; “I cannot thank the Society enough for this funding.
At Falkland House School we believe it is vitally important that our pupils have the chance to be creative and express themselves artistically. Art and music have always been a big part of our curriculum and something I know all the boys enjoy. “We intend to use this money to boost the number and scale of arts projects currently being undertaken by pupils and to invest in improved arts equipment for the School.” Alongside the donation to Falkland House School, the Society is also funding two awards for students undertaking Art and Media Masters Programmes at Dundee University’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art
