for web - Artists in Schools owl

This residency places professional artists in special educational needs departments of schools in the Argyll & Bute region. It is supported by the Robertson Trust, St James Place Foundation, J N Marshall Island of Bute Trust and Argyll & Bute Trust. Artists are based at Cove Park for four weeks, during which time they can concentrate on developing their own practice as well as having the unique opportunity of spending a concentrated period of time planning and developing the arts education project. In 2011 this residency was awarded to filmmaker Kate Burton and graphic designer Zeynep Arman. Both artists have extensive experience of working with individuals with learning difficulties, working for organisations such as Project Ability in Glasgow.
