Calling Potential Arts Students In Caithness - Portfolio Programme Fully funded
19th October 2015
With the support of the Highland Youth Arts Hub, North Lands Creative Glass are offering 10 young people the rare opportunity to attend 2 fully funded residential courses, on site in Lybster.
The first one is in November (13-16th) and the other takes place in April (22-25th) - both dedicated to experimenting with a variety of visual arts techniques. It is hoped that participants will produce new work that could be used in their portfolio to support entry to further arts education.
Places are open to young people aged S4-S6, attending Highland Council secondary schools. Please note those interested in applying must be available for both weekends.
For more info, please e-mail stacey.toner[AT]highlandyouthartshub.org

Any seed when planted needs many things in order to flourish and grow. North Lands Creative Glass was a seed sown in 1996 in the small fishing village of Lybster on the North east coast of Scotland and over the past 20 years the people and place of Lybster and Caithness have provided good fertile nourishment.
