Emma Aitken, a recent GSA graduate, has been volunteering with our Create Saturday Visual Arts Classes for the last few months. We are delighted to have her, and our other volunteers, back for this new block of workshops!
“I am currently volunteering with Project Ability in the Saturday Create classes. I have found the workshops to be far more fun than I ever imagined and look forward to seeing the participants each week. It is refreshing to see the children and young adults’ enthusiasm to make work, and their dedication in persisting with projects.
Since graduating last year from Painting and Printmaking at the Glasgow School of Art, I have found myself in a typical post graduate slump. However these classes have been invaluable in teaching me the importance art can have out with an art school. Their freedom and expression has reminded me of the possibilities of approaches in making work. It is rewarding to think of my skills as having a positive impact on others, and I hope they have enjoyed having me as a volunteer as much as I have enjoyed being one!”
Thank you Emma!
