Art for Grown-ups

Art for Grown Ups, led by Artist Alice Betts, is a long-term project for Muirhouse and the surrounding areas, offering adults an opportunity to learn and develop creative skills together, while creating art for exhibition and public spaces. Art for Grown Ups is supported by Creative Scotland.

Sessions involve a wide range of experimental and playful activities, creating both small, and large-scale artwork. Support with personal projects and creative goals can also be provided.

Saturday Specials: 11.00am – 4.00pm

Art for Grown Ups’ Saturday Specials take place about every 6 – 8 weeks depending on the projects we are developing. Activities are suitable for all ages, so you are welcome to bring your young people along with you. Sessions are open to anyone regardless of whether you have participated with Art for Grown Ups before.

Our next Saturday Special is Saturday 25 September making artwork for the community notice boards in MacMillan Square to the front of North Edinburgh Arts. We’ll be drawing outdoors, and working, large scale, on paper in the Art Centre. Lunch will be provided and accompanying children and young people are welcome.
