All NADFAS Societies subscribe to the aims and objectives of the National Association: the advancement of arts education and appreciation and the preservation of our artistic heritage. The Decorative and Fine Arts include all aspects of the arts such as... paintings, sculpture, architecture, garden design, ceramics, costume design, mosaics, embroidery, glass, theatre design, furniture and stage sets... and much more, both old and modern. It is about learning, enjoying and understanding the world of art and you don't need to be an artist to do that.
