Pupils get views of art school

The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - NEWS -

Young­sters with creative am­bi­tions have dis­cov­ered what it takes to get into art school dur­ing a trip to a re­cently cre­ated cam­pus out­side For­res.

The Glas­gow School of Art moved into Blairs Steading, at the Al­tyre Es­tate, ear­lier this year fol­low­ing a £2.5mil­lion re­fur­bish­ment of the site.

It has now opened its doors to about 50 pupils from S4 to S6 at Buckie, Lossiemouth, Milne’s and Spey­side high schools, and their teach­ers.

Only 30 places are avail­able for a num­ber of the courses run by Glas­gow School of Art.

The A-listed steading was built in the 1830s, and now com­prises the Mack­in­tosh School of Ar­chi­tec­ture, fa­cil­i­ties for de­sign and in­no­va­tion and a school of fine art.
