THE ARTS SOCIETY AMERSHAM


WELCOME to The Arts Society Amersham

formerly known as Amersham DFAS

We are a Member Society of The Arts Society (TAS). This is a leading arts charity which which works to advance decorative and fine arts education and appreciation. It also promotes the preservation of artistic heritage by bringing together groups of like minded individuals through regular lectures, study days, visits, and tours. In addition, it promotes a number of volunteering activities, including Church Recording, Heritage Volunteering and a Young Arts programme.

There are over 360 societies across the UK, mainland Europe and New Zealand, and the sister organisation, ADFAS, in Australia.

What do we offer? We offer a wide-ranging programme of monthly lectures, all of which are delivered by acknowledged experts on their respective fields. We also have a comprehensive programme of visits, to Museums, Art Galleries and places of historic and artistic interest. Our Society provides an opportunity to learn, make new friends and have an enjoyable time sharing common interests.

There are three more important areas of our work:

  1. We support a dedicated team of Church Recorders each year.
  2. We donate money to local schools to support local initiatives to introduce children to the world of the Arts subjects.
  3. We give continuing support to our local heritage and plan to form a team of Heritage Volunteers to work with local projects to conserve items of historic importance.
