Creative Residency Exhibition 2018

Dalziel High pupils showcase outstanding work at North Lanarkshire’s Creative Residency Exhibition 2018

The work of Dalziel High School Art and Design students Emma McMillan and Iona Thomson was showcased and celebrated at the North Lanarkshire Council Creative Residency Exhibition. This prestigious event was held in Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life, Coatbridge.

North Lanarkshire Council’s Creative Residency is a unique and successful initiative where S4/5 pupils from across North Lanarkshire’s secondary schools can use it as a vehicle to further develop and enhance their creativity as young artists, designers, musicians and creative writers; in a realistic context that is highly relevant to young people.

For entry to the Creative Residency Programme pupils were encouraged to submit an application and samples of their work to enable them to participate in a week long arts residency at Kilbowie Outdoor Centre, Oban in June. The rigorous application process is the first step in allowing pupils to experience the initial challenges of the Residency. Finally, the work produced from the Residency experience and the Masterclasses was showcased at the wonderfully successful exhibition.

The success of Emma and Iona was clearly exemplified throughout the process, cumulating in the highly successful achievements displayed at the exhibition event.

Dalziel High School is extremely proud of the Emma and Iona and their achievements within this process.
