Broch pupils creative at RGU

Pupils from Fraserburgh Academy were among a group who took part in a recent Access to Creative Education in Scotland (ACES) programme delivered locally by Robert Gordon University (RGU).

Funded by the Scottish Funding Council, ACES provides the opportunity for pupils in the city and shire to participate in a range of activities and workshops on campus over the 16-week programme, giving them a feel for what it is like to be a student at RGU.

Their work went on display at a final showcase event in the Sir Ian Wood Building at the Garthdee campus.

Mandy Clarke, Creative Project Coordinator, Creative Learning, Aberdeen City Council, said: “Through meeting artists and designers at different stages of career, the pupils have found inspiration whilst gaining first-hand knowledge of how different people’s journeys into the arts can be.

“Hearing more about individual creative practices and how artists pursue and sustain their creative careers throughout their life, has endorsed for some of the young people that they too would like to go to art school.”
