Budding artists at ACES day

On Wednesday 6th December Dawn Barrett from Glasgow School of Art’s Access to Creative Education in Scotland (ACES) department came to Inveraray Church Hall to run a portfolio Day. 18 S5 + 6 pupils came from various secondary schools to show some of their work and glean top tips to help them develop their folios prior to applying for art & design courses. The day also included a practical workshop element focusing on drawing which expanded the pupil’s repertoire of skills and approaches to mark making. ACES aims to encourage S4 – S6 pupils from 90 target schools in the West of Scotland to make informed choices about degree level study in Art & Design and Architecture. The project seeks to widen participation in Higher Education for students who are often under-represented in universities.
