One of our Society's objectives is to promote public interest in decorative and fine arts, particularly amongst the younger members of our community. In recent years we have collaborated with the Southwold Art Circle to provide money for competitions at Reydon and Southwold Primary schools and at St Felix School. We have also helped set up exhibitions of the work submitted, presenting winners with certificates and prizes for art materials at the schools.

In 2016, just before the Chinese New Year, the Society sponsored a workshop on Chinese Brush Painting at Southwold Primary School facilitated by Jane Evans, a professional Chinese Brush Painting artist working and teaching in Cambridge. One of the children told Jane after the session that it had been 'the best day of his life'!
