Friends of Visual Arts and Design (FOVAD)
is an active and exciting P&C sub-committee of Ascot State School parent
volunteers led by our P&C funded Artist in Residence.
FOVAD works with the school and all of the
P&C to create opportunities for our children to express themselves
artistically and to increase students’ appreciation of Visual Art and
Design. FOVAD was launched in 2008 with the aim of supporting the school
in fostering an appreciation of art and inspiring creativity amongst
FOVAD produces Ascot State School Art Week
each May and Art Evening in September, every second year. FOVAD also runs
art-related student competitions and facilitates art workshops throughout the
year, and are involved in art-related community events.
FOVAD welcomes parent volunteers who
appreciate visual art and wish to help optimise their children’s experience
with art at primary school. Artistic talent by parent volunteers is
appreciated but is definitely not required for a FOVAD volunteer as our role is
to facilitate opportunities for art expression and art appreciation by the
students themselves. We warmly welcome any spare time you have to join
with us. Please contact FOVAD@ascotss.eq.edu.au.
