Art - Schools as art installations

8th May 2009 at 01:00

Funding from the Scottish Arts Council will lead to a host of new public art projects, including innovative works in schools.

A total of Pounds 466,000 of National Lottery money has been allocated to the projects, which, as well as schools, will investigate possibilities for beaches, woodland and parks.

In Angus, Project BluePrint is at an early stage, with a trial taking place at Carnoustie High - Pounds 57,000 will be used for guidelines on how public art projects should be approached. Angus cultural co-ordinator Adele Sharp said the projects could range from murals in school corridors to outdoor sculptures to temporary light shows. The ideas will be generated by pupils and school staff, who will work with artists, technicians and designers.

Other projects include an exploration of the history of the area around St Peter's Seminary at Cardross in Argyll and Bute, and a celebration of Hallowe'en in woodland around Huntly in Aberdeenshire.
