During the October week (13-17 Oct), 42 S6 students planning to pursue a course in art & design disciplines attended our creative extras art & design week. Designed to assist students with the 'extras' required for creative courses, the week included: practical studio work at Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh Napier, Heriot-Watt and Queen Margaret universities; gallery and artists sessions with the Fruitmarket Gallery; working with art & design students; advice and guidance on applications; culminating with a celebratory exhibition of students' work at the ECA Sculpture Court Balcony. Watch the videos to get a snapshot of some of the week's activities.
LEAPS would like to extend a big thank you to all of the Student Mentors and staff who put in a huge effort to make the week a success. In particular, the participating students, who brought a fantastic energy and attitude to the week. We are already looking forward to next year...
