Edinburgh College of Art is offering a programme of subject-based masterclasses for 5th and 6th year school pupils, introducing them to topics studied at the College.

The sessions are developed and delivered by leading academic staff and will allow insights into student life and study experience.

They offer guidance about the wealth of career opportunities on offer in art institutions and special collections.

The sessions emphasise hands-on experience (from curating exhibitions to art making), and students have the opportunity to discuss and get advice on their own works and/or portfolios. They will also have the opportunity to handle original works.

The sessions will allow students to:

  • Get a taster of the different study opportunities at ECA
  • Develop their understanding of different careers in the Arts
  • Get specialist guidance on their portfolio development in Art and Design
  • Hear about life as an ECA student from a current undergraduate
  • Familiarise themselves with different ECA facilities, from artist and music studios to libraries and special collections
