Workshops in schools throughout Dumfries and Galloway
Upland is working to develop links with schools throughout Dumfries and Galloway by taking our artists and makers into the classroom.
During 2017, we worked across four secondary schools providing taster workshops across a range of media from drawing and painting, to textiles and ceramics.
This builds on previous outreach work undertaken in 2014/2015, when Spring Fling took six artists as residents into two schools for five days to work with schools and students in Dumfries & Galloway across the curriculum on a project identified in collaboration with the school. (For more information on this previous project.)
In 2018 we continue to forge these links delivering workshops and a series of talks, taking artists and makers into the classroom to share their creative journey and discuss how they function as a creative practitioner in Dumfries & Galloway.
Early Engagement 2017 was supported by LEADER and the Holywood Trust. The 2018 programme is funded by the Holywood Trust and the Archie Sutter Watt Trust.
