Our 2019 Summer Art School took place on the 8th – 12th July at Pollok House in Pollok Country Park. It provided young people a varied experience of art disciplines such as drawing and mark making, painting, photography, Environmental Art, printing and sculpture. Each day was split into small individual and group projects that were linked to an artist and skill.
At the end of the Summer Art week there was an exhibition where family and friends were able to view all the exciting projects created.
Below is a sample week itinerary and the structure of the Summer Art School day. Activities on offer are subject to change and will alter from year to year. Weather permitting we always aim to use the grounds and gardens of the park throughout the week.
