Time During opening hours

This exhibition highlights artwork produced in response to the Dick Institute’s exhibition programme over the past school year, by pupils from East Ayrshire’s Gaelic language provision primary school ‘Sgoil na coille nuaidhe’, translated as ‘New Beginnings School’.  

Guided by visual artist and Gaelic speaker Eòghann MacColl, the pupils have been responding to themes from the exhibitions Michael Morpurgo, A Lifetime in Stories and Karl Blossfeldt, Artforms in Nature to create their own new artwork featuring video, large-scale charcoal works and illustrations.

Now in its second year, this unique creative learning project aims to promote the use of Gaelic and the development of Gaelic language skills utilising visual arts and culture, and is supported by Bòrd Na Gaidhlig and Creative Scotland.
