Young Talent 2018

Greg Coultas - Tractor Tractor

It is time to announce one of Project Ability’s most exciting exhibitions of the year … Young Talent!

Young Talent showcases work from young artists attending our Create workshops. As usual we have a brilliant mix of paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and much more. With an age range of 5 -28, this show is a fantastic mix of styles, skill sets and aesthetics. Subject matter for our 2018 Young Talent covers a lot of ground! We’ve got an amazing collection of abstracts, a few celebrities and style icons, boy bands, big and small beasties, superheroes, cartoons, locomotives and  much, much more!

We are now in our third year of singling out one young artist in particular who has shown excellent progress in the development of their work. This artist is then offered a solo show in our Gallery II during the Young Talent exhibition in the main gallery. This year was a tough decision but we are delighted to announce Dominic Hemphill-Whyte as our Solo exhibition in Gallery II during Young Talent!

Congratulations to Dominic and all of the wonderfully talented young artists in the show this year.

Our Create programme engages with children and young people with disabilities aged 5-28 in a wide range of creative activities including visual arts, film and new media.

The programme includes evening and weekend workshops, one-off projects, events, film screenings and exhibitions. Our in-house programme is delivered from our fully accessible and specially equipped Trongate 103 workshops and our outreach programme from venues nationwide.

All of our activities are tailored to the individuals we work with and are fully inclusive. The professional artists who deliver the programme are highly experienced in working with young people with a wide range of support needs.

We provide a high level of support and will typically offer a ratio of one artist to four young people.  Young people with personal care needs should be supported by an appropriate adult. Creating a fully inclusive environment is important to us and siblings and friends are welcome to attend our classes.

We work with individuals, families, schools, voluntary sector groups, museums, galleries, support agencies and other visual arts organisations and welcome new collaborations and partnership working.
