The DCAS mission statement is: ‘Supporting young people to unlock their potential through the creative arts. Encouraging each person to succeed. Providing inspirational activities in a unique and welcoming environment.’
Donut Creative Arts Studio (DCAS) is a youth arts facility in Chesterfield which offers evening workshops and sessions in music and art for young people aged 11 to 19 years.
The ArtBox group meets every Thursday during term time and works on a wide range of creative arts workshops, projects and sessions. Last year the group were invited to create an art exhibition for the Chesterfield Art gallery. Everyone was really excited to begin the planning and creation for the exhibition.
The art work that was created for the exhibition comes from thoughts and feelings within the young people at DCAS, all based around the theme of the past present and future.
