Our art club volunteer, muralist and local artist Damian Callan, will soon be celebrating a big birthday with an exhibition. Many of our children have worked with Damian and so may be particularly interested in attending.
(If I haven’t already done so) I would like to let you know about my 60th Birthday Exhibition from 11th – 17th December 2020 at the Dundas Street Gallery, Edinburgh. I am borrowing around 35 paintings that depict Ruth and the children over the past 25 years. I will also be exhibiting a further 30 new drawings and paintings alongside the ‘retrospective’ selection.
A local project called Gorgie Dalry Home Grown is offering families in Dalry and Gorgie free vegetable growing starter kits.
Have a look at the video and information link on how to apply for your pack below to see if you think you would like to try growing your own veg at home. If you do maybe you could send in some pictures about what you have grown.
It has three brand new Resource Packs complete with fact sheets, wellbeing check-in and hands-on activities which can be completed using items you have at home!
Activities focus on STEM, Social Studies, Literacy, Outdoor Learning and Arts & Crafts. In addition they are offering every child or young person the opportunity to earn their very own, personalised, Mine of Information Certificate from us when they complete any one activity!
So if you are looking for more activities away from the schoolwork coalface why not dig into what they are offering?
Our resource pack topics include:
Rocks, Fossils and Energy
All our resources are completely FREE, no sign-up required, and can be downloaded from our website here.
