“I loved the art class so much and learnt a lot. I’ve ended up getting new materials and sketch pads and at Christmas I decided to draw everyone’s house as their Christmas card to practice, instead of just sending the usual cards from the shop”. – Art group member
Regular classes and network for anyone interested in art including a weekly online sketching group,and a weekly Art class in person (currently on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions). There is also a community Facebook Group you can join and the possibility of hosting local exhibitions in the future.
Connecting Craigmillar works to enable opportunities for local people to meet, have fun, learn together, form new friendships and develop lasting positive change together.
It is for local residents of all ages and backgrounds in Craigmillar and Niddrie to develop projects, groups, events, and activities around things they are interested in, and to focus on things they want to learn about and change. The aim and ethos of the project is about supporting mutual aid, informal learning, and community-led solutions.
If you live in the area or know someone that does, you can get in touch with Connecting Craigmillar who can support you to develop an idea, passion, or interest, or act on an issue you care about.
