Well it's all go here at Bridge House Art! Eleanor has been dashing around the countryside in her usual manner, always leaving behind groups of exhausted but inspired students in her wake!

So far travelling workshops have been held at North West Highland Art in Kishorn,
Old Sleningford in North Yorkshire,
Upper Deeside Art Society took their inspiration from a misty and atmospheric Craigievar Castle.
Then we were off on a brief, sunny (and eventful) excursion over to Spain
This weekend the delights of Perthshire is the destination of choice. Have a look at our Facebook page for more images from the latest workshops.

Back at the studios, we are gearing up for the summer school courses. The materials have been ordered, the studio is having a shake-down and the garden is starting to look as wonderful as ever. The courses on offer this year have been very well received by the looks of the advance bookings.

Never fear though, there are still some places to be had;
Playing in Silver - weekend workshop with Merlin Planterose. 14th & 15th June.
Experimental Printmaking - a weeks printmaking course with Christine Morrison and Tiril Planterose. 4th - 8th August.
Bookforms - the curious life of objects a week with Eleanor White & Janis Breckenridge. 18th - 22nd August.

We are also still interviewing for the portfolio course starting in October. This is often referred to as 'life changing', so much so that we are wondering whether we should attach a health warning with the course information! Not only do we have applications from school leavers, wanting to develop a portfolio of work to help gain access into a degree programme at art school, but also mature students taking a sabbatical break from their everyday career or those wanting to explore and develop their art for a short and intense immersive period. If you're thinking along these lines, now's the time to get in touch.

Finally, if you are around any of the Scottish Art Schools over the next few weeks - Edinburgh (ECA), Glasgow (GSA), Dundee (DofJ), Aberdeen (RG) or Elgin (Moray), watch out for the current Degree Shows. We always have some ex-students graduating each year and it's always a joy to see their progress since leaving Bridge House Art. We have had another full house of successful applications with this years group of students, so we'll be watching their development over the next few years as well.

Please share with anyone you think may be interested in what we do, it's always the best recommendation.
