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.
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.)
During 2017 - 2018, we worked across various secondary schools providing taster workshops across a range of media from drawing and painting, to textiles and ceramics and delivered 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.
We are passionate about creating quality opportunities to benefit young people, from those with little or no experience in creating and making to those who have gained qualifications through college or art school.
If you would like more information on this project strand or would like to find out how to arrange a workshop or talk for your school then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
