Thinking about applying to study a creative subject at college or university after you finish school? Then this is for you!

The Access to Creative Education in Scotland (ACES) Project is a national Widening Participation initiative, aiming to encourage and support senior-phase pupils from partner schools to consider careers and higher education in Art, Design and Architecture.
Our Explore Art School events will give you the opportunity to find out more about studying these subjects at higher level.

How the week will work:

On Monday everyone will take part in a drawing and making day. This day is a compulsory part of the week for everyone - we'll use the work we make on that day for development on the other days.
Then you can choose which of the events during the rest of the week you want to do. You can do as many or as few as you like!

You can choose from: 

  • Architecture (Tuesday)
  • Jewellery & Silversmithing  (Wednesday)
  • Textiles (Thursday)
  • Interior & Environmental Design (Friday)

(we'll be running Explore Days for other subjects in the autumn!)
