Senior art & design pupils are CAST ACES!

ACES is a major widening participation project at The Glasgow School of Art, funded by the Scottish Funding Council. It encourages 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. Pupils from Campbeltown, Tarbert, Oban and Helensburgh attended two ACES sessions held in Argyll & Bute last week. The ACES team (Dawn and Leanne) delivered an informative day involving creative workshops and portfolio support including looking at sample folders from successful applicants.
Pupils were encouraged to go on and develop a personal body of work out with their school content and subject specific work to aid their application folios. They also encouraged pupils to ask critical questions and explore different ideas.“The pupils all found the day very helpful and enjoyable.”Art teacher, Argyll & Bute.
