Studio 183 is a brand new visual arts course for young people who have always thought there must be more to art than still life. In this unique fusion of storytelling and visual arts participants aged 14+ will be given the chance to get to grips with some of the most interesting visual art forms of this century and the last. Using stories as inspiration, this exciting and dynamic course will culminate in an exhibition in one of Glasgow’s top galleries, in which students can learn how to curate their work. This work will also benefit students who are building up a portfolio for art school or college. Led by Glasgow School of Art graduate and community visual arts specialist, Alex Bowie
