Students enjoy art4you Scotland's 1st birthday

BALFRON basED art4you Scotland, is going to hold a second season of art classes following the success of its recent art week to celebrate its first anniversary.

Students from Bearsden, Glasgow’s west end and even Texas, joined artist and art lecturer Ewen Duncan at his studio, a restored byre at Ballochruin Farm, near Killearn, last week for water colour, oil painting and life drawing tuition, when art4you Scotland marked its first year in business.

The students ranged from 15 years to post-retirement age and Ewen was delighted with their work.

He said: “It was inspiring to see how all our guests blossomed and developed their own artistic styles during such a short period of time.

“There was a great creative feeling to the whole week.”

Colette Todd from Bearsden was among the birthday group. She said: “It was a fantastic week, and I learnt a huge amount.”

Gillian Hollis from Glasgow’s west end, added: “I’m amazed at how much we covered and did, in what feels like the fastest week I’ve ever had. It was great fun.”

A family from Texas holidaying in the West of Scotland also joined in the art week.

Ewen Duncan said: “We were delighted to be able to offer them a uniquely Scottish and creative celebration of their daughter’s 7th birthday.”

art4you Scotland’s second season of weekend courses and day and evening art classes begins on August 27 until December 14.
