I and 4 others have been busily preparing for the first ever Waverley Line Open Studios (artists open studios) since the beginning of the year. And finally on Saturday we opened our doors to the public for people to see what we do, how we do it and get lots of other questions that they might have answered.
It might all seem quite quiet here whilst students are attending interviews and waiting to find out if they have any offers. However, behind the scenes there has been a lot of activity on a personal creative level.
From 10 – 4pm on 10 May, I and 4 other artists are opening our studios for the first Waverley Line Open Studios, in Eskbank, Newtongrange and Mayfield.
We are delighted to be able to offer life drawing in Midlothian in the new year. Having spent a bit of time liaising with the schools we have now finalised our classes which will be taking place at the new Lasswade High School Centre.
We've talked about life drawing and how it can be a great addition to any art portfolio for art college but it is not essential. However, if you enjoy it or have never done it before and can get to class then by all means get on down there and get drawing.
Life drawing can be a great addition to any art portfolio for art college but it is not essential. If you enjoy it and can get to class then by all means get on down there and get drawing. If not, don't worry, but find some other way to demonstrate your strong drawing skills in your portfolio.
As part of our new blog post theme, that of ‘Meet the art teacher/tutor/artist’ each month we will highlight either an art teacher/tutor or artist and ask a handful of questions, nothing too serious but something that could encourage some interaction between art teachers, artists also college tutors.
Portfolio Oomph founder Julie Read kicks it off – if you would like to take part or know someone who would then download the questions here and fire them back to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
