Teenagers looking for something great to do over the summer, make new friends and have a lot of fun along the way are invited to come along to a free art club at Armadale Castle, specially tailored for young people.
Artist and dancer Molly Danter will be running the Nowhere Art Club for 11-17-year-olds in the grounds of Armadale Castle this summer. The sessions are all free.
Nowhere Art Club is an art and dance club led by Molly and the young club members. Molly is a dancer, artist and storyteller from Edinbane working with SEALL and ATLAS Arts this year as an artist in residence.
Four weekly sessions (beginning on 27 July) can be enjoyed as standalone workshops or a series of four. Each day has its own title and focus but other elements might slip in and everything will be held outdoors.
Sessions involve the use of different creative tools, such as movement, writing, drawing and photography, to explore and play with changing perspectives. Each session will focus on a particular creative tool, sometimes merging tools together, celebrating the many different ways expression can take.
27 July | 10.30am to 1pm Old Laundry, Armadale Gardens (next to the Museum of the Isles)
28 July | 10.30am to 1pm SEALL Tent, Armadale Gardens (lawn behind the castle ruin), meet up
4 August | 10.30am to 1pm SEALL Tent
5 August | 10.30am to 1pm SEALL Tent | 1pm Lunch | Swings @ 2.30pm rounding up session to 4pm

The funding for the club is part of a targeted fund from Creative Scotland’s Youth Arts Fund, organised by Dingwall-based Fèis Rois. This ambitious project works across the nine Highland Council Community Planning Partnership areas to support the recovery of youth arts provision in the region as Covid-19 restrictions begin to lift.
