James Watt workshop

A group of new S4 pupils are working with Drama peers and artist James Watt on Thursday this week during a collaboration workshop exploring his work. Pupils will compare his paintings captured around the Clyde docks and make comparisons between the demise of shipbuilding in Glasgow and the input of Kirkintilloch to this industry. It is hoped pupils will combine talents to create a short film inspired by issues within his work.


Glasgow School of Art Degree Show tour
