Art classes on offer for young people at city gallery

26 March 2013

Art courses aimed at young people will be on offer next month [April] at Aberdeen Art Gallery, Schoolhill.

These two-day courses are for anyone aged 14 - 18 years of age with an interest in art. Young people considering applying to art school could find them particularly beneficial.

Fiona Mair, learning manager, at Aberdeen Art Gallery, said: "These workshops are a brilliant way for young people to meet other people with similar interests, try out different techniques and get to work with a practising artist. We think they offer great value for money, but more importantly are really good fun."
