Our Summer Art School 2019 takes place from the 8th – 12th July at Pollok House in Pollok Country Park. It aims to give young people a varied experience of art disciplines such as drawing and mark making, painting, photography, Environmental Art, printing and sculpture. Each day will be split into small individual and group projects that will be linked to an artist and skill.
At the end of the week there will be an opportunity for family to come and see an exhibition of the work produced.
Below is a sample week itinerary, the structure of the day and activities on offer are subject to change. Weather permitting we will use the grounds and gardens of the park throughout the week.
